Webinar #7: COVID Talks for Docs

Series: Adapting to Increasing COVID Care Needs in your Practice

March 31, 2021

Subject: Managing chronic symptoms of COVID-19

Time details: 12 p.m. – 1 p.m.

This is the seventh webinar in the bi-weekly series on the care and management of COVID-19 patients in the community.

Webinar #7 will respond to common and emerging questions from primary care and other generalist physicians (i.e., pediatricians, internal medicine) about potential long term health effects of a COVID-19 infection. Participants will have time to ask questions related to managing patients and practice needs during COVID-19, including:

  • What are patients reporting as common lingering or chronic symptoms of COVID-19
  • How to manage patients suffering from these symptoms in primary care & when to refer

All community physicians and clinic staff who have questions related to managing chronic symptoms of COVID-19 are invited to join this session. We encourage community physicians to share the webinar details with their clinic staff.

Learning objectives

At the end of this session participants will be able to:

  • List the type, and impact of long-term symptoms following a COVID-19 infection
  • Describe approaches for managing patients with long-term symptoms of COVID-19

Please note the webinar will be recorded. If you are unable to join live, the recording will made available on the Webinars & Online Learning web page within a few days following the event.
