As the lasting effects of COVID-19 emerge from the near overwhelming demands on the acute services, the need for long term support and rehabilitation for survivors is becoming increasingly clear. But the how is still very much a matter up for debate.

This webinar is a must for anyone involved in the design, delivery and commissioning of post COVID rehabilitation/ community services as well as those involved in public and population-health .

This webinar will explore:

  • Are traditional community services set up to provide COVID rehab?
  • Or, is there a need for specialist services to focus on supporting COVID recovery?
  • Who are the best clinicians to provide rehab to COVID patients?
  • How we approach COVID rehab from a commissioning perspective?

 

We have an impressive line up of speakers:
