    • Mental Health

During the COVID-19 pandemic, physicians may be deployed to unfamiliar clinical units and may need to have difficult discussions around goals of care that they are not used to having, perhaps even with patients they don’t know. In this podcast, Dr. Yolanda Madarnas, CMPA Physician Advisor, and Dr. Steven Bellemare, CMPA Director of Practice Improvement, discuss the CMPA’s experience with cases involving end of life care.

Listen to them discuss key messages that may help you effectively support patients and families who need to make plan of care choices as a result of a COVID-19-related critical illness.
