Rehabilitation as a key strategy for the COVID-19 pandemic.
A longitudinal study published in mid-July suggests that re-infection of coronavirus is probable which means the virus is here to stay. This has wide reaching implications on health service provision as we will not only have to combat the virus now but likely seasonally too. We will have post-covid survivors for the forseeable future and they are going to have unique needs when it comes to regaining physical strength and function. Our profession is going to be key to enabling rehabilitation through the different phases of the disease so it is our duty to ensure we are all up to date and ready to help the global need whereever our local community is.
Physioplus is committed to this cause too and that’s why we’ve made all of our COVID-19 courses available for free through a trial account. This includes the latests 5 course programme focussing on rehabilitation and the courses aim to provide an overview of rehabilitation in different settings, and population groups and to empower us to be able to manage the patient in the post-acute phase and in the community during this pandemic.
