COVID-19 has drastically altered end-of-life (EOL) care in long-term care (LTC) settings. Family participation and communication with staff and residents has been significantly decreased, there’s unpredictability about the severity of its effects on residents, and symptom onset is often rapid with high morbidity rates. All this underscores the importance of proactive EOL care planning from admission onwards in LTC to support communication, comprehension, and collaborative decision-making for all stakeholders. This online workshop draws on both current research and the experience of LTC professionals to share insights, concrete steps, and procedures that might help improve communication around EOL care in LTC settings.
