    Trauma-Informed Palliative Care in Times of Humanitarian Crisis: Lessons from Ukraine and Rwanda

    Recorded on Tuesday, October 4, 2022.

    Trauma-Informed Palliative Care in Times of Humanitarian Crisis: Lessons from Ukraine and Rwanda

    The Palliative Care (SIG) of IPOS is organizing this webinar.

    Humanitarian crises are large scale events that affect populations or societies causing a variety of difficult and distressing consequences that may include massive loss of life, disruption of livelihoods, breakdown of society, forced displacement, and other severe political, economic, social, psychological and spiritual effects (WHO, 2018). Palliative care, with its focus on reducing physical, emotional and spiritual suffering, has an important role in caring for the sick, displaced and dying during times of humanitarian crises.

    For this special webinar, the IPOS’s Palliative Care Special Interest Group Education Committee invites IPOS members and non-members to attend a presentation and roundtable discussion on the role of Trauma-Informed Palliative Care during times of humanitarian crisis.

    In this webinar, experts will discuss the role of palliative care within humanitarian crises and use examples from the current crisis in the Ukraine and past crises in Rwanda, to illustrate the ways in which a trauma-informed approach may benefit traumatized individuals, families, communities and palliative care providers alike.

        Developing Psycho-oncology in LMICs” – Part 1 (Africa, S. America, India)

        This webinar was recorded on May 25, 2022 and is approximately 89-minutes in length.

        Psycho-oncology has now been standing tall as an evidence-based discipline since more than two decades now. It is well established in the developed nations. However, its growth in LMICs has been sporadic, with some countries with well-set clinical services and solid space for research. It has not been so in some other LMICs. There seem to be regional and cultural challenges but despite that, our resolve is firm. So what can be done to establish, develop and enhance Psycho-oncology throughout the LMICs?  The purpose of this webcast is to learn from our member representatives who have been able to set up and are working on advancing Psycho-oncology services, capacity building and research in their regions/areas.

        The key learning objectives are:

        • To understand different working models of setting up Psycho-oncology services in an LMIC setting
        • To reflect on various challenges and facilitators in different contexts
        • To formulate a roadmap for setting up a new Psycho-oncology service

        COVID’s Global Impact on Palliative Care: Creating Connections

        This webinar was recording on Thursday, October 21, 2021 and is approximately 1 hour and 40 minutes in length.

        The IPOS Palliative Care Special Interest Group Education Sub-Committee held this special webinar and roundtable panel discussion on the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic on the field of palliative care held Thursday, October 21, 2021. In this webinar, an international panel of Palliative Care experts presented the latest information about the pandemic and how it is impacting the health of individuals, families, communities and palliative care providers.

        The COVID-19 pandemic is having a profound and worldwide impact on individuals, families, communities and healthcare providers, and the field of Palliative Care, with its focus on reducing suffering, is playing an important role in caring for the sick and dying. In both developed and developing countries the global pandemic has dramatically altered the death and dying process and has challenged our capacity to care for patients and to support families and healthcare providers. In this webinar, an international panel of Palliative Care experts will describe the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic throughout the world and will participate in a roundtable discussion to examine some of the key challenges and opportunities for palliative care patients, families and providers. Issues such as palliative care practice, resource management, end of life practices, grief, dying alone, and provider fatigue and resilience will be explored.

            Webinar: Cancer in the Elderly / Personas Mayores CON Cancer

            Recorded in December 2020. Approximately 35 minutes in length. English and Spanish recordings available.

            Speaker: Tania Estapé, PhD

            Cancer is a disease of the elderly, as its incidence increases with age. However, many elderly people arrive late to the diagnosis or have attitudes of denial due to erroneous beliefs, pessimism or taboos towards the possibility of cure or early detection. We also find negative beliefs or resignation towards their own age, which influence these attitudes. In addition, many elderly people come from a time when health / disease was a matter for the doctor, there was no information on healthy lifestyles and the idea that one could do something to reduce the risk of cancer or other diseases. All of this greatly depends on the culture, society and resources in patient's environment. It is important to design strategies adapted to the development stage of the elderly and give them the possibility to actively choose.

            ______________________________________________

            El cáncer es una enfermedad de mayores, pues su incidencia sube con la edad. Sin embargo, muchas personas de edad avanzada llegan tarde al diagnóstico o tienen actitudes de negación por creencias erróneas, pesimismo o tabús hacía la posibilidad de curación o detección precoz. También encontramos creencias negativas o de resignación hacía su propia edad, que influyen en estas actitudes. Además, muchos ancianos provienen de una época en que la salud / enfermedad, era cosa del médico, no había información sobre estilos de vida saludables ni la idea de que uno podía hacer algo para reducir el riesgo de cáncer o de otras enfermedades. Todo esto, depende enormemente de la cultura,la sociedad y recursos en el entorno del paciente. Es importante diseñar estrategias adaptadas a la etapa evolutiva de los mayores y darles la posibilidad de elegir activamente.
