Long Covid

Description

One in ten people infected with COVID-19 continue to experience symptoms after 12 weeks or more after their recovery from the initial infection. Evidence is only emerging on what Long Covid encompasses and how rehabilitation from the condition could look like. With symptoms on a continuum, it might not be straight forward to diagnose the condition. This session will explore the rehabilitation needs for people with Long Covid and look into ways to increase understanding of this condition amongst physiotherapists and the general population.

Objectives

  • To understand what the term ‘long COVID’ means
  • To reflect on lessons learned from other conditions
  • To explore why rehabilitation is important
  • To explore what ‘safe rehabilitation’ means
