Webinar: Evaluating and Supporting Patients Presenting With Fatigue Following COVID-19

September 30 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

“During this COCA Call, presenters will discuss Post-COVID conditions (PCC), an umbrella term for the wide range of health consequences present four or more weeks after infection with SARS-CoV-2, which includes Long-COVID. It can be difficult to distinguish symptoms of fatigue and post-exertional malaise caused by PCC from symptoms that occur for other reasons. The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) has recently published a Multi-Disciplinary Collaborative Consensus Guidance Statement on the Assessment and Treatment of Fatigue in PCC. It provides practical guidance to clinicians when assessing and treating individuals with fatigue and a history consistent with PCC. The burden of PCC is expected to reflect the disproportionate burden of infection by race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status and to highlight ongoing inequities in healthcare. The Health Equity Work Group of the AAPM&R has developed guidance to highlight the central role that principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion play in delivering quality healthcare.”
