    Last Aid courses (LAC) were introduced in 2015 in three countries (Norway, Germany and Denmark) to teach the public about palliative care. The main aims of LAC are to stimulate the public discussion about death, dying and palliative care and to enable people to participate in end-of-life care in the community. At present the International Last Aid working group includes members from 18 countries from Europe, Brazil and Australia. Usually LACs are held in a classroom setting with 6-20 participants and two facilitators. Initially the 2nd International Last aid Conference was planned in October 2020 in Maribor, Slovenia. When the pandemic struck this became impossible. To cope with the demanding challenges and the fact that physical group meetings and conferences became impossible in 2020 Last Aid International had to find ways of continuing the work. A taskforce on Online Last Aid Courses was established in Germany and LACs were held Online via different web based platforms. The 2nd International Last Aid Conference took place online with 174 delegates from 18 countries. The implications and effects of COVID-19 on the development of Last Aid International will be presented and discussed in detail.References: 1. Bollig G, Meyer S, Knopf B, Schmidt S, Bauer EH.

    Background: Approximately 4.1% of Danish children experience child abuse (CA) and clinical experience suggests that the number of cases of physical abuse of children are on the rise during the COVID-19 lockdown. In Denmark, the Nordic Barnahus model is implemented to support cross-sectional collaboration in cases of suspected child abuse and the Danish National Centre for Psychotraumatology (NCP) has supported the development and implementation of the Danish version of the Nordic Barnahus model (DCC) since 2013. Aim: To describe and discuss the collaboration between a national multidisciplinary clinical practice, the DCCs, and research at the NCP to simultaneously qualify research and practice in child psychotraumatology. Development and method description: The DCCs and the NCP originally collaborated to develop a valid assessment battery to support the DCC’s task of screening for trauma-related symptoms and -disorders following exposure to physical or sexual CA. This formed the basis for a continued collaboration including the foundation of a database on psychological outcomes following child abuse as well as initiatives in education and supervision. Results: Currently, data has been collected for 2000+ children and provides opportunities for validating updated developmentally sensitive measures and examining characteristics of children exposed to CA from a national sample. Conclusion and perspectives: The collaboration and integration of research into clinical practice improves both fields. The DCC work with updated evidence-based assessment of vulnerable children, and the NCP gains access to a unique and large cohort of children to generate knowledge on physical, sexual, and psychological CA.

    We model and simulate the COVID-19 infection andhealthcare dynamics in Denmark from the onset till March 5,2021. The simulation is matched and calibrated to hospitaland death data as well as antibody population measurement.In this work we focus on comparing the time evolution of theestimated infection level with the daily identified infected individuals based on the national testing and contact tracingprogram. We find that the national testing program on average identifies 1/3 of the infected individuals July 1, 2020 -March 5, 2021. Our investigations indicate the current program does not have a proper balance between random probing, focused contact tracing, and testing prioritization. Toomuch of the program operates as a semi-random daily sampling of part of the population. We propose a policy with afocus on local infection tracing and interventions.

    This paper investigates how parents of children in primary school dealt with anxiety in the context of pandemic health risks during early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. In Denmark, this group found itself at the frontline of the reopening after an early lock-down. Creches, kindergartens, and primaryschools were among the first societal institutions to reopen, with the youngest pupils in primary schools to return first. This had been discussed controversially among parents, and one day after the announcement of the reopening a Facebook group called “My child should not be a guinea pig for COVID-19” had emerged. In this paper, we are analyzing how these and other parents dealt with this situation, based on qualitative interviews with 30 key informants (parents and teachers) supplemented by a qualitative survey filled in by 31 parents, collected during the first re-opening phase (April – July2020). Our findings indicate several types of strategies of dealing with anxiety and risk, namely somethat involve trust (1), especially in schools and teachers, enabling the parents to overcome their anxiety related to sending their children back to school, and others, that are not primarily built on trust, but rather on ignoring the anxious “gut feeling” (2) and resisting strategies (3) either in an overt (openly criticizing the re-opening) or hidden (e.g. keeping the child home sick) way. As our sample included a group of asylum seekers, our findings also indicate that patterns of exclusion in the context of an universal welfare state and a society characterized by comparatively high equality might mean a limitation of possible strategies, as e.g. resisting strategies appeared to be out of reach for that particular group.
