About the Long COVID programme

Long COVID and post-COVID-19 syndrome is an emerging condition and one that we are continuing to learn more about. This elearning session is aimed at all healthcare professionals, registered and unregistered and provides an introduction to long COVID and post-COVID-19 syndrome. It explains what we mean by long COVID and post-COVID–19 syndrome, the common signs and symptoms, investigations and how patients might be assessed and supported with these.

The session takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes to complete and a certificate is available on completion of the session.

More information

A more advanced session is currently under development, and we anticipate that this will be available in Autumn 2021.
