[Journal article] COVID 19: Prioritise Autonomy, Beneficence and Conversations Before Score-Based Triage

11 Nov 2020

Authors: Esther Peiying Ho, Han-Yee Neo

Published in: Age and Ageing 2020; 1–5 doi: 10.1093/ageing/afaa205

Summary points:

  • Before applying score-based triage, physicians should discern if the older adult will benefit and also want critical care.
  • Discussions to convey clinical information and discern the older person’s therapeutic goals are important.
  • Conversations aimed at achieving goal-cordant care must become a new clinical norm.
