Reply To: Challenges of Care with COVID-19


Hey all!

I agree with the consensus here– that covid provided some unique challenges for providing care for everyone. While I did not work with the EPI team at that time, I can imagine how it made it much harder to create connections with people. I’d imagine that people experiencing paranoia would have more challenges interacting with a professional on a screen rather than having in person services. I agree with Bart though, there are some neat benefits that came out of the push for virtual delivery, especially for clients in rural and remote areas.

Also, while I haven’t used the 2-COM before, I appreciate how it hits a lot of the areas and also asked consent regarding talking about them. That second part makes it feel more trauma-informed and client-centered, while still giving the clinician a snapshot of where the client is at.
