NHPCO Releases COVID-19 Ethics Toolkit for Providers

Monday, April 6, 2020  
Share |

The National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) has developed a COVID-19 Ethics Toolkit for providers. The kit includes an ethical framework written by Carla Cheatham; information from a booklet on ethical considerations during a pandemic; our Shared Decision-Making tool; and discussion, symptom management, and comfort care tools from Dr. Mimi Pattison at CHI Franciscan.


This toolkit can help healthcare professionals anticipate difficult decisions, provide information and support to seriously ill individuals and their families, and connect seriously ill individuals to resources aligned with their goals of care. NHPCO believes community-based services are a critical partner in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Special thanks to the NHPCO Ethics Advisory Council members for sharing their expertise.
