The effect of funeral practices on bereaved friends and relatives' mental health and bereavement: implications for COVID-19

NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) West

This rapid evidence review explores the effect of funeral practices, such as including restrictions in size, on friends; and relatives' mental health and bereavement. The review found evidence regarding a relationship between mental health or bereavement outcomes and funeral attendance or participation is inconclusive. It found no systematic reviews in this area. Eleven relevant observational studies of low to moderate quality were identified and these had inconsistent findings (eight from the USA, one each from the Netherlands, Australia and Rwanda). It concludes research is needed to better understand the experiences and consequences of grief and bereavement during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The impact of COVID-19 on black, Asian and minority ethnic communities

NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) West

This rapid evidence review looked at the factors influencing the risk of death from COVID-19 among black, Asian and minority ethnic communities. The review found the risk of death from COVID-19 is generally higher amongst black, Asian and ethnic minority (BAME) communities than white British people. This appears to be due to a complex mixture of factors, and no one factor alone can explain all of the difference. Contributing factors include, in no particular order: being poorer, where people live, overcrowded housing, types of job, other illnesses, and access to health services.

Virtual multidisciplinary team meetings for the older population

NIHR Applied Research Collaboration (ARC) West

This rapid evidence review explores how to effectively carry out practice-level multidisciplinary team (MDT) meetings virtually, specifically for older people. A review of available evidence finds that virtual multidisciplinary team (vMDTs) have potential benefits, emphasising the possibility of bringing professionals from different backgrounds to work together and provide more integrated, efficient, accessible, and higher quality care overcoming geographical and timing barriers. vMDTs usually have some disadvantages or barriers for their implementation, emphasising the need of a proper infrastructure and good, designated co-ordination. The summary provided in the review should be taken as informational and not as evidence-based practice. However, it is likely to be of use to care professionals planning to use a vMDT for the older and frail population.
