The Impact of Long COVID on Behavioral Health
August 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
While the public health emergency has ended and many individuals have resumed their normal activity, the long-term impacts of the pandemic continue to create serious challenges for patients with long COVID. Nearly one in five Americans report symptoms of long COVID so it is imperative healthcare providers understand the challenges of long COVID and feel equipped with the resources necessary to care for patients. The symptoms associated with long COVID can vary, but one area where there is noticeable impact is on behavioral health.
Join us for an educational webinar on Wednesday, August 23, 10-11:30am, as we hear from Janna Friedly, MD, MPH, and Tracy Herring, PhD, from UW Medicine’s Post-COVID Rehabilitation and Recovery Clinic. They are leaders in identifying and treating long COVID behavioral health concerns and we are grateful for their willingness to share their learnings. By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:
• Recognize the impacts of long COVID on behavioral health.
• Identify patients who are exhibiting behavioral health concerns.
• Describe interventions to help address mood, anxiety, and coping concerns.
• Increase confidence in assessing and treating behavioral health issues for patients with long COVID.
This event is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider # CEP17702 for 1.5 Contact Hours. Register for the session, and reach out to Brittany Weiner, Assistant Director of Behavioral Health, at BrittanyW@wsha.org with any questions.
