Reimagining the Inpatient Palliative Care Consult: Lessons From COVID-19
An article published in the American Journal of Managed Care addresses how the "COVID-19 pandemic accelerated health care systems' transition into the era of telemedicine", and how palliative care adapted accordingly by developing new models for care delivery. Smitha Ganeshan, MD, MBA, et al. share palliative care digital innovations that came out of the pandemic, which they believe can continue, and ultimately expand access to care and address the workforce shortage. CAPC's COVID-19 Rapid Response Resources Hub and Virtual Office Hours were among the resources mentioned for clinicians on the front lines during the pandemic.
