Updated March 25, 2020 | By CAPC Staff

Dr. Diane E. Meier states that symptom management and communication skills need to be the focus.

On March 23, 2020, CAPC released a new statement on COVID-19 about the importance of symptom management and communication skills, inside and outside of palliative care.

“Palliative care teams were a scarce resource before this pandemic, so it is essential that we deploy our expertise in a manner that reaches the largest numbers of patients in need. We therefore urge all clinicians in all disciplines and specialties across our health care system to rapidly enhance and deploy their skills in communication and symptom management.”
