The American Hospital Association, the AHA Living Learning Network, and CAPC discuss what hospitals learned during the pandemic about the impact of palliative care.

COVID-19 placed immense strain on health care professionals, with unrelenting exposure to the suffering of patients and family caregivers, as well as to the stress about personal safety. During the pandemic, hospitalists, specialists, nurses, and other clinicians turned to palliative care teams to relieve patient suffering and facilitate difficult conversations, co-manage complex patients and provide just-in-time education to enhance their own skills in communication, and pain and symptom management. Presenters, including CAPC's Brynn Bowman, will discuss the lessons learned from the front lines of the pandemic across the country.
