From Professor Ruth Parry and colleagues for health and social care professionals. She has put together some evidence-based guidance. We hope this will be helpful to those of you who are likely to be having – and training people who will have - difficult conversations in the care of people with COVID-19. The evidence comes from research on thousands of difficult conversations recorded across various health and social care settings in the UK, Australia, and the US. If you would like a version with references to the original publications, please email the Real Talk team email@example.com.
The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Respiratory Care have produced information leaflets for patients with breathing problems. Here is advice for patients on body positions that will help as recommended by our local specialist respiratory team.
