There's still much that's unknown about long COVID, but individuals struggling with the condition can't afford to wait until all the answers are found. And neither can their health care providers.

APTA can help.

Now available to members: APTA's long COVID clinical summary, a resource for getting the basics on the condition, with special emphasis on rehabilitative interventions.

Developed by an expert clinician group that included APTA members R. Lucas Burns, PT, DPT; Ryan Schrock, PT, DPT; and Kristen Johnson, PT, MSPT, EdD, in addition to representatives from speech-language pathology and occupational therapy, the summary touches on everything from a fundamental condition description to interventions, plan of care, and discharge. Other sections include examination, prognosis, and disease classification.

Long COVID will also be the focus of an upcoming two-part live online course offered by APTA: "Long COVID Rehabilitation, Multidisciplinary Care: Pitfalls to Avoid and Pearls to Enhance Treatments." The Oct. 28-29 presentation, part of the APTA Lecture Series, will include presentations by PTs, an occupational therapist, a speech-language pathologist, and rehab psychologist with experience in treating the condition.
