HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series: Post COVID-19: Caring for patients with long-term symptoms
April 14, 2021
Registration is open to HANYS Members and Non Members
This webinar will provide the latest information on how to provide multidisciplinary care for people who exhibit long-term symptoms after COVID-19 infection.
More than 28 million Americans have been infected by SARS-CoV-2 since the beginning of the pandemic, with more than 27 million survivors to date. At least 25% of patients experience persistent symptoms after initial infection, with one in 10 experiencing symptoms well after 12 weeks. For many, symptoms are debilitating and can affect multiple organ systems.
Notably, persistent symptom burden is not restricted to older patients or those with severe disease. Therefore, “long COVID” or “post COVID” syndrome is markedly different from the well recognized post-intensive care syndrome.
Given the complex nature of this condition with multiple implications for patients, a multidisciplinary approach to care is needed.
Objectives: At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:
- describe the spectrum of post-COVID illness, including evolving pulmonary phenotypes; and
- outline a clinical blueprint for multidisciplinary care.

HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series
This webinar is part of the HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series held on a Wednesday at 3 p.m. Additional sessions will take place as needed on Mondays at the same time.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced healthcare organizations and providers to navigate unprecedented operational and clinical challenges. In both surge and recovery phases, healthcare organizations and providers need to re-evaluate their operations and plans for delivering care in a post-pandemic world. As they plan for the “new normal” while battling the second surge of COVID-19, healthcare leaders must consider their use of telemedicine, infection prevention and control practices, supply chain management and infrastructure changes. To assist with planning, the sessions will feature national and state experts to explore strategies and considerations for the critical phases of the pandemic.
Additional sessions are listed below— access recordings of past sessions and register for upcoming sessions online.
