Live Webinar: Post-COVID Conditions in Children and Young People
Post-COVID conditions is the term the CDC uses for the wide range of physical and mental health consequences that can occur four or more weeks after SARS-CoV-2 infection. Although COVID-19 is generally mild in children and young people, they may experience post-COVID conditions with symptoms such as fatigue, sleep difficulties, cognitive difficulties, depression, anxiety, and pain. This webinar reviews the epidemiology and clinical presentation of post-COVID conditions with an emphasis on children and young people and describes how post-COVID conditions are being addressed with clinical guidance, research efforts, and dissemination of information. Similarities to other syndromes with post-acute sequelae, including post-sepsis syndrome, are presented.
Healthcare providers including nurses, sepsis coordinators, physicians, APPs, pre-hospital personnel, and pharmacists as well as survivors and/or caregivers.
At the end of the presentation, the attendee should be able to:
- Describe the epidemiology and symptoms of post-COVID conditions with an emphasis on how they can present in adults and children;
- Identify factors associated with an increased occurrence of post-COVID conditions;
- Describe the impact of post-COVID conditions on quality of life;
