【Managing Long Covid Patients in Primary Care】
In this talk, Prof. Delaney discussed the management of Long Covid patients in primary care. At a conservative estimate 20% of people suffering COVID-19 infection will have persisting or new symptoms beyond 12 weeks of initial infection, and 5-10% will still be significantly impaired at a year. This has been termed ‘Long Covid’ by patients, but is a complex of identifiable and as yet fully defined clinical problems, for which no definitive therapy is available, but for which much can be done to help. Managing these patients in primary care is a challenge, involving exclusion of other serious diagnoses, identification of ’treatable traits’ such as dysautonomia and appropriate rehabilitation and lifestyle management.
