The International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC) has compiled this list of resources relevant to palliative care and COVID-19 published by academia, civil society organizations, member states and special agencies of the United Nations, with links to all of the websites and documents listed.
In the spirit of solidarity, the four global palliative care organizations [the International Association for Hospice and Palliative Care (IAHPC), the International Children’s Palliative Care Network (ICPCN), Palliative Care in Humanitarian Aid Situations and Emergencies (PalCHASE), and the Worldwide Hospice Palliative Care Alliance (WHPCA)] joined forces to develop a project on Palliative Care and COVID-19. The objective of the series is to provide globally relevant information and guidance to civil society and UN Organizations, policymakers, administrators, and health care providers on palliative care in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The four organizations invited experts from around the world to produce a series of Briefing Notes followed by weekly webinars. We hope that the Briefing Notes and Webinars will serve to strengthen health systems and further integrate palliative care in policies and national health strategies.
To register for the weekly webinars based on these Briefing Notes, use this link: https://bit.ly/2KCxFxt (Note: you need to register for each webinar separately). Webinars are recorded - past webinars can be seen in the Webinars, Videos and Apps section in this website.
