Facing Moral & Ethical Dilemmas During COVID-19

This podcast is an interview with Dr. Anne Dabrow Woods, Chief Nurse of Wolters Kluwer Health Learning, Research & Practice, adjunct faculty for Drexel University, and a critical care nurse practitioner for Penn Medicine, Chester County Hospital. Our discussion covers topics such as personal protective equipment (PPE) – both availability of resources and the time necessary to put on full gear to protect ourselves, decisions on supportive care when faced with ventilator shortages, and the lack of social support for patients when visitors are restricted. Dr. Woods closes with inspirational words on resiliency and recovery when this crisis is over.
