The Hidden and Here Mini-series aims to use storytelling to highlight and educate clinicians on the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on caregivers, non-physician essential workers and teachers who we believe have been hidden but very much here. In this episode, Ranak Trivedi, PhD interviews Dr. Peter Poullos - a Clinical Associate Professor, Radiology and Founder/ Executive Director of the Stanford Medicine Abilities Coalition (SMAC). Dr. Poullos was interviewed for this episode, as he himself, requires caregiving as a result of a bicycle accident that took place during his fellowship training. He spoke of his experiences, both as a physician and a person needing assistance with personal care. Following the interview, the panelists discuss the challenges that caregivers, both those who are family/friends and paid caregivers face and provide key strategies to help improve the engagement with caregivers.
