This presentation draws on data collected through in-depth, semi-structured interviews with a group of six end-of-life workers in Hong Kong and Australia during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. These workers reflected on how the requirement to follow exceptional infection control regulations associated with COVID-19 fundamentally altered interaction with individuals and families during the end-of-life period. Preliminary findings indicate that workers found creative ways to adapt some of their practices to preserve vital relational aspects of their work.
