Long COVID for Oregon Clinicians

Thursdays, 12pm-1pm


This 12-Session program will support clinicians, staff and other healthcare professionals working with patients living with Long COVID in the following ways:
Diagnose Long COVID and differentiated from conditions with similar presentations.
Educate patients about the disease and self-management techniques
Manage the three most common hallmark Long COVID symptoms: Post-exertional malaise, fatigue, and cognitive dysfunction.
Manage hallmark Long COVID symptoms not common in primary care including dysautonomia and POTS.
Develop an understanding of patient experiences in order to apply a trauma-informed approach to care.

Due to the interdisciplinary nature of Long COVID care, we encourage participation by teams of medical, physical therapy, speech/language pathology, and/or behavioral health clinicians.

Due to grant requirements, clinicians in the following counties will be prioritized for participation: Baker, Umatilla, Wasco, Gilliam, Hood River and Sherman. Further, we will prioritize healthcare practitioners serving older adults, Latino populations, and those working in medically underserved communities.
