A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Clinician Outreach and Communication Activity (COCA) webinar will be held on Thursday June 3, at 2 p.m. on managing post-COVID conditions (aka COVID Long Haulers).
Alex Vosooney, MD a family physician from Minnesota, will be presenting with the CDC regarding new interim guidance which provides a framework for physicians and other health care providers in their initial assessment, evaluation, management, and follow-up of persons with possible post-COVID conditions.
Post-COVID conditions refer to the wide range of physical and mental health consequences experienced by some patients that are present four or more weeks after a SARS-CoV-2 infection, including by patients who had initial mild or asymptomatic acute infection. Post-COVID conditions are still being characterized and include symptoms such as cognitive difficulties, fatigue, headache, dyspnea, and palpitations.
Subject matter experts, physicians, and patient representatives from across the United States collaborated to develop the new guidance. Rapid recognition by physicians and other healt hcare providers of patients with post-COVID conditions and multidisciplinary care using the assessments and approaches described in this guidance could improve the wellbeing and treatment of people with post-COVID conditions. As with all COCA calls, the webinar will be recorded and available on its website.
