Penn Nursing Podcast Special Edition: Advanced Care Planning in the Era of COVID-19

The number of COVID-19 cases continues to grow. A recent edition of Amplify Nursing features Elise Tarbi and Brianna Morgan, who are both board-certified adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioners with advanced certifications in hospice and palliative care, as well as doctoral students at Penn Nursing. With demands on both hospitals and providers expanding, and resources predicted to become scarce, there has been heightened public discourse about rationing. Both discuss how advance care planning has increased in importance in this landscape in order to support people with an increased risk of dying, as well as the health care providers and family members who may be facing these difficult decisions.

It features nurses who are leading the way in nursing science, policy, and innovation. The podcast is made possible by the Krista and Rich Pinola Fund for Innovation in Nursing.
