Commissioner's Medical Grand Rounds: The Use of Multidisciplinary Approaches to Long COVID Care

Long COVID, a condition in which individuals experience a wide range of symptoms for weeks or months after an initial COVID-19 infection, impacts a significant portion of the population worldwide. Long COVID can affect nearly every organ system, causing significant physical, social, and psychological consequences. The prevalence and complexity of long COVID has led to the establishment of multidisciplinary specialized clinics. This virtual Grand Rounds session will provide insight into emerging holistic and patient-centered approaches to long COVID management. Three panelists with experience working with long COVID patients will discuss the physiological mechanisms by which long COVID affects patients, what is known about the epidemiological determinants of long COVID, the management of significant physical and neurological symptoms, and the importance of rehabilitation as part of the treatment plan for those suffering from long COVID.
