 Chat Details


Hosted by WeDistrictNurse using #WeDNs

For our second Journal Club we are going to have a tweet chat on a rapid review related to palliative care, community nursing and the covid-19 pandemic. Journal clubs are an easy way to engage with published literature in a relaxed and informal way. Participating in a journal club supports evidence-based practice, increases confidence in accessing research and contributes to revalidation/portfolio hours. There is no obligation to read the article before the chat but being familiar with it will improve our discussion.

For this Journal Club we are going to take our discussion wider than the literature review and use it as an opportunity to reflect on the covid-19 pandemic and consider how we are feeling moving forward into winter.

The research question that this rapid review aimed to address: What is the role and response of primary care and community nursing services in the delivery of palliative care in epidemics and pandemics?

Questions to Consider

  1. What are your impressions of the review? You might want to consider the “rapid” approach and why this was selected over other types of literature reviews, such as systematic reviews.
  2. What did you think about the findings?
  3. What did you think about the conclusions?
  4. Do you think the findings of this review are still current and up to date five months later?
  5. Have you felt able to keep up with emerging literature related to palliative and end of life care in the community during the pandemic? If so, what resources have you relied on?
  6. How do you process the changes to clinical practice that have been implemented since March 2020? Is there anyone you speak to or debrief with? Any helpful services?
  7. How do you feel as we head into the winter?
  8. How do you unwind and switch off?
