ARN Partners with ANA to Present Free Webinar on Managing Patients with Long-Term Effects of COVID-19
Most people who have had COVID-19 recover completely within a few weeks. But too many people continue to experience symptoms and negative impact after their initial recovery. These people have been called "long haulers." This includes a variety of possible symptoms, including cognitive impairment, fatigue, headaches, shortness of breath, and kidney dysfunction and many others.
Nursing priorities and interventions for long haulers
ARN Board member Mary Ellen Hatch, MSN RN CRRN, and ARN Past President Michelle Camicia, PhD RN CRRN CCM NEA-BC FAHA FARN FAAN, recently presented a webinar that is now freely available as part of ANA's free COVID-19 video education series. The webinar, titled "Managing Patients with Long-Term Effects of COVID-19: Nursing Priorities and Interventions," addresses the following topics:
- Types and presentation of prolonged COVID-19 sequelae
- Disease mechanism of prolonged symptoms
- Treatment goals for patients experiencing prolonged symptoms
- Home management of these patients
- The impact on family caregivers and how to help
- How to effectively use the Teach-Back Method
- Valuable Patient Education materials
- Using technology to enhance care of patients with prolonged COVID-19 sequelae
As the number of people with acute COVID-19 begins to decline, attention will shift to helping those who continue to experience post-COVID-19 sequelae. This program provides valuable and practical information on nursing care to help these patients recover.
