Project ECHO®: Long COVID

Description

We would like to invite you to join our Project ECHO® Long COVID. Large numbers of patients who have been infected with SARS-CoV-2 continue to experience a constellation of symptoms long past the time that they’ve recovered from the initial stages of COVID-19. Often referred to as “Long COVID,” these symptoms—which can include fatigue, shortness of breath, “brain fog,” sleep disorders, fevers, gastrointestinal symptoms, anxiety, and depression—can persist for months and range from mild to incapacitating. In some cases, new symptoms arise well after the time of infection or evolve over time. Please join us, and please send us your experiences and any cases you would like to share. One of our goals during this series is to facilitate virtual case discussion among providers to summarize what is known about these patients who do not fully recover. Subsequently, our expert panelists will provide participants with information on how to asses, diagnose, and manage the effects of COVID-19 after the initial stages of infection.

Project ECHO® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes education to provide best evidence healthcare practices and reduce health disparities. ECHO is led by an expert team that uses multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual learning sessions comprised of a short didactic followed by discussion among clinical experts and participating providers. All WNC providers are welcome, and we will seek case presentations from those of you who have seen patients diagnosed with Long COVID.

These sessions will be scheduled monthly on Thursdays, from 7:00 am – 8:00 am EST, with clinical updates and case presentations for discussion each session. The first session is scheduled for Thursday, April 8th, at 7:00am EST.

Session topics will include expert panelist discussions on Long COVID, such as:
1. Effects of Long COVID on Respiratory System
2. Effects of Long COVID on Neurological System
3. Effects of Long COVID and Arthralgias
4. Psychological Effects of Long COVID
5. Effects of Long COVID on Cardiac System
6. Physical Therapy and Long COVID

MAHEC engages in evaluation activities to better understand the impact of our programs. By registering for this course, you agree that we may use your personal information in evaluative research regarding this program. Any reports published will be de-identified and reported in aggregate format.
