Communicating to relatives and children about COVID 19

An expert communication group have developed a very useful info-graphic for Paediatric Oncologists when they need to telephone a family with diagnoses and other test results in this time of Covid 19. There is also an accompanying guide for parents to support them when telling any children about the death. The info-graphics are accompanied by a short film aimed at healthcare professionals who are contacting relatives by telephone to tell them that an adult patient has died: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_HhyNufoZ0. These resources have been developed by the team commissioned to write the 2019 Lancet series on communication with children about life threatening conditions. https://www.thelancet.com/series/communicating-with-children
