Perspectives on the Treatment of Patients With Post-Acute and Long COVID
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on health care and rehabilitation. SLPs are now treating large numbers of patients who were hospitalized for COVID-19. Meanwhile, another group of patients have emerged—those who experienced relatively mild cases of acute COVID-19 but now present with long COVID, a puzzling and debilitating set of symptoms. This session highlights patient experiences with COVID-19 and its aftermath and what clinicians have learned to date in treating these two groups of patients. The presenter identifies the gaps in care, the challenges that these patients face, and how we can best serve them going forward.
This course is a recorded session from the "2022 ASHA Health Care Summit: Grand Rounds in COVID-19 Rehab" online conference.
You will be able to:
describe symptoms of post-acute sequalae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC)
- distinguish between the needs of patients who had acute hospitalizations for COVID-19 vs. patients with long COVID
- outline the SLP’s role in diagnosing and treating patients with PASC
- incorporate patient perspectives into service delivery
