As healthcare pro we may experience relevant problems in communicating Covid-19 issues to people with Intellectual Disability and/or Autism. We develop a resource to help this process. Here you can find it in Italian: https://www.sidin.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/scudo-al-COVID-19-per-PcDI_A_SIDiN_v-1_5.pdf
I can share German and Dutch translation.

CONTENT FROM THOMAS CARROLL, ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR OF MEDICINE, UNIVERSITY OF ROCHESTER:
MVP is a practical three-step process that is easy to teach (to learners at all levels), remember, and employ in all types of serious illness conversations (SICs). The comprehensive nature of the model allows clinicians to utilize it in any SIC, in particular when the nature of the conversation changes midstream (e.g., from “goals of care” to prognosis). We hope that the simplicity of the MVP model will enable clinicians to effectively and empathetically guide patients and families though challenging conversations, particularly when the clinician is feeling stressed by the seeming enormity of the task at hand.
For additional support in using the MVP process please feel free to reach out to the Advanced Communication Training (ACT) Program here and consider joining an upcoming 30 minute presentation and discussion of skills, tips and potential scripts to deploy in the moment, to enrich the facilitation of advance care planning conversations in-person or virtually.

In the third week of March 2020, during the Coronavirus emergency, it has been done an online survey with 264 responses about the needs of Italian doctors in this specific moment. The principle need expressed by doctors are:
1. Protective supports (in 90% of cases it’s about masks, gloves…)
2. Training for remote relationship management with patients (and how covid-19 can impact with other their diseases)
3. info about organisational and governance guidelines for outpatient activities (also with a view to privacy compliance)
4. for frontline Healthcare Professionals psychological support and their own mental and physical well-being.
The survey found out and underlined the three dimensions of the needs:
1. functional (“Make me efficient to manage Covid”)
2. emotional (“Make me confident that I can get to solve the health problem”)
3. social (“Convey patients disease status”)
