Patients with COVID-19 can deteriorate very rapidly to end of life, and therefore the aim of this programme is to outline a strategy for managing these patients to avoid distress when dying. All Wales COVID-19 Palliative Care Guidance (linked below) has been generated to support frontline teams in this distressing end of life context.
Check out the guidelines and tutorials on the ward management of patients with COVID-19, and some useful resources.
