Long COVID: Journeying together through the fog

Long COVID: Journeying together through the fog

Collaborating to support people with Post-Acute COVID-19 Syndrome (PACS)

Several NZ universities are collaborating to bring together national and international speakers, to share their learnings about how best to support people who experience ongoing symptoms following a COVID-19 infection, including those with Post-Acute COVID-19 Syndrome (PACS) or Long COVID. We hope that by sharing our learnings, we can gain more clarity about this group's early identification, initial support, and rehabilitation service needs.

Te Whare Whakamātūtū | Rehabilitation Teaching and Research Unit, Department of Medicine, University of Otago, Wellington, are hosting this symposium to broaden the debate and to allow a range of ideas and perspectives to be shared. The Ministry of Health has indicated a work programme to develop a Framework for Long COVID Rehabilitation, and we intend the symposium's discussions to contribute to this critical work. This free symposium will be held online on Wednesday 25 May, with resources available for later access. Clinicians, health system planners, the general public and people recovering after COVID are all welcome to join us.
