General practice in the post covid world
“While much of the political focus during the pandemic response has been on acute hospitals and intensive care units, it is clear that general practice will have to deal with the health consequences of Covid-19... The social and economic impact of lockdown, for example social isolation and unemployment, will also have adverse health consequences”
Challenges and opportunities for general practice, Royal College of General Practitioners, July 2020.
The programme will provide you with evidence based support to address this challenge through a series of SIX SESSIONS designed to provide PRACTICAL guidance for the delivery of BEST CARE by answering these critical questions:
What are the factors which increase the risk of Long-Covid?
Who are the high-risk patients?
How can they be identified?
What are the most effective interventions?
What special care is need for black, Asian and minority ethnic groups?
What additional rehabilitation support is needed?
What are the examples of best practice in primary care?
How do we need to adapt service models to deliver optimal care?
