Kristen, could you write what the title was again of the "communication play book" Mary showed?
IT is Vital Talk Cheryl. Easy to google
Thank you Dr Lawson
Phil, thanks.... can you tell me how you manage the assent.? do you start at admission saying that no ventilator will be offered due to frailty?
I entered part way through Dr Lawson's presentation, so I am grateful that I will be able to review the recorded program. I have families that agree to a DNR, but when I speak to them about thinking ahead of time if they would be agreeable to have us do care and comfort here versus hospitalizations, I was surprised at some requesting hospitalizations... even from sons who are surgeons, stating, I want to give Mom every chance... and Mom is well over 80.
are you seeing people for Palliative Care at early part of admission?
Dr Lawson, 1 surveyor from CMS infectious disease is recommending Zithromax and an antiviral early in the disease... Have you seen any improved outcomes with this?
Remdesivir apparently only 66% effective, not a match against placebo yet
do you know if old folks have GI complaints.. would this be milder in old frail patients
Wow, great webinar
Clare: not sure. Will ask Rich who knows more
thanks again, most valuable
