Rehabilitation of patients with COVID-19

The World Health Organization has developed a 7-module course on rehabilitation of patients with COVID-19 as part of its free training series on Clinical Management of COVID-19.

Modules address the varied rehab needs of COVID-19 patients including cognitive impairment, physical deconditioning, respiratory impairment, swallow impairment, communication impairment and challenges in completing activities of daily living. Techniques for rehabilitation also are addressed. Each module lasts 20-30 minutes.
