CMPA Podcast: COVID-19: Reasonable care

A public health emergency may force a shift away from the usual patient-first ethics, to a public-first approach. Such a shift in mindset is difficult for everyone involved. In this podcast, CMPA Physician Advisor Dr. Yolanda Madarnas and CMPA Director of Practice Improvement Dr. Steven Bellemare discuss the stress generated by the sudden need to ration resources and restrict access to certain treatments in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Listen to them discuss the concept of reasonable care and the patient’s best interests to help you make sense of the unusual demands the COVID-19 pandemic may place on you.
