New COVID-19 e-learning on recovery and rehabilitation available
23 September 2020
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues it is recognised that those who recover from the virus often continue to display a range of physical and psychological symptoms that require therapy and support.
This interactive e-learning programme aims to provide health and care staff, including Allied Health Professionals, fitness professionals and carers with strategies and techniques to manage key symptoms experienced by people recovering from COVID-19.
Four 20-minute e-learning sessions cover breathlessness, exercise, cough and fatigue, with knowledge checks occurring at key points. Although the sessions interconnect, they can be completed as individual modules.
On completion of the sessions, a certificate can be downloaded. The programme is also included in the continuing professional development (CPD) portfolio for health and care staff.
More information about the programme
This work was commissioned by Health Education England in collaboration with the Pulmonary Rehabilitation department at University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust.
The authors bring wide and diverse knowledge and experience to the COVID-19 recovery and rehabilitation e-learning, which aided the development of a high-quality e-learning programme, that can be used by a variety of health and care staff including carers. It is an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to learning that fully encompasses the ethos of rehabilitation.
