Management of the long-term effects of COVID-19

In September 2020, 67% of members who responded to a RCGP survey said they were looking after patients with symptoms from COVID-19 lasting longer than 12 weeks, many of whom were never admitted to hospital and were never tested for COVID-19. If you have a patient such as this, this webinar is for you.  We hear from the ZOE ap team, patient perspectives on their symptoms and what they need from their GP; and with 81% of members surveyed requesting more clinical guidance to help, we also give an update on the new NICE/SIGN/RCGP guidelines for management of the long term effects of COVID-19.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand what a patient with ongoing symptoms of COVID-19 needs from their GP team.
  • Be aware of current evidence from the ZOE ap on the epidemiology of long-term effects of COVID-19.
  • Understand and be aware of  the NICE/SIGN/RCGP "Management of the long term effects of COVID-19" guidance development.
  • Consider the safety of patients with ongoing symptoms of COVID-19 in the community.
