Interdisciplinary Treatment of the Long COVID Patient

Description

Fatigue, postexertional malaise, and cognitive impairment are among the most prevalent symptoms of long COVID. Because of the novelty of this population, there is limited research, clinical guidance, or awareness of rehabilitation’s role in long-COVID management. Physical therapists, occupational therapists,
and speech-language pathologists are in unique positions to help optimize outcomes in long COVID given their experience addressing similar functional impairments in other patient populations.
This webinar is a sequel to Interdisciplinary Management and Screening of the Long-COVID Patient. This presentation will assist practitioners in identifying appropriate treatment techniques for the long-COVID patient. By attending this session, participants can expect to feel more equipped to provide intervention to the long-COVID population with an individualized, person-centered approach.
Following the lecture, there will be a Q&A session to get your most pressing questions answered.
