Throughout December I'm doing a #PalliativeCareAdvent; every day I am going to challenge #misconceptions about #PalliativeCare, #EndOfLife and living with a #LifeLimitingIllness. Some personal, some factual. Do join me!

Day 1
"#PalliativeCare is only for those who are imminently dying".

Palliative care can help people throughout their illness, from point of diagnosis. It can help people live well, live longer and focus treatment/care around their wishes.

Day 2
"#PalliativeCare can only occur in the absence of life-prolonging interventions"

It can be given during life-prolonging treatment or in the absence of it. It's about quality of life, symptom control, the person's wishes and preparing for the future. #PalliativeCareAdvent Image

For @tadorna, #Covid19 made him feel like a #patient - again. We should not ever let #diabetes define us. It made him feel vulnerable because of this whole lot of uncertainties. Lack of #insulin and supplies was a worry.

For Bastian, #PeerSupport was key during this #pandemic. #telehealth for him is uploading his data and having a Zoom call with his endo. We #PwD want digital AND personal interaction with our #HCP.

We have #PPE shortages even in the wealthiest country in the world. On the bright side, the incredible, global maker community has created an explosion of different #faceshield designs for #covid19. Why choose the @dtm_tweets DtM-v3 #faceshield?
It is the first #faceshield to be recommended by the U.S National Institutes of Health @NIH #3dprint exchange.

Spark Health Design partnered with @dtm_tweets to apply our experience designing medical devices for low-resource settings to a reusable #faceshield for #covid19. It is the work of over 80 volunteers including experts from @Boeing, @Microsoft, @Harborviewmc, @uwdfab, and more.

Back to basics public health measures IF only @POTUS would listen !
 
Rule 1: Listen to your scientists! Public Health experts should do daily briefings NOT @realDonaldTrump or @VP Politicians must step aside and let scientists lead the war against #COVID19 @DrDzul @ProfAdeeba ImageImage
Rule 2: Enforce extreme NOT slow and/or incremental #SocialDistancing like Italy!

eg Clear Florida’s beaches.

China lockdown the #COVID19 epicenter #Wuhan and sent 40,000 HealthCare Providers #HCP to assist Image
Rule 3: Like Malaysia lockdown dangerous #HotSpots.

#MCO enforces #StayHome orders.

Provide and ensure food, medicines etc delivery to quarantined, old, poor, infirmed and their families

Go into #freeze mode or risk overwhelmed and overburdened hospitals like Italy, Spain ImageImage

#COVID19India intensifies #HCP
@MoHFW_INDIA @DHFWKA @AnantBhan

1. HCP across sectors need adequate PPE, less exposure, access to healthcare
2. I fear that the adulation we saw yesterday will turn into #COVID19stigma: people will not want doctors and nurses living next to them
@epigiri @HuffPostIndia @the_hindu @DeccanHerald massive funding to protect #HCP and measures to destigmatise is needed.
The morale amongst #HCP especially nursing cadre is low and panic is setting in. Leadership in each organisation and across the whole healthcare set up needs to take this in to cognisance
