Meeting the psychological needs of people recovering from severe coronavirus (Covid-19)
The British Psychological society are holding a webinar exploring the psychological needs of people recovering from severe coronavirus.
There is currently a gap in healthcare following a stay in intensive care, as there is no standard pathway for rehabilitation.
This means that for people who have been in intensive care with severe Covid-19, there is no natural route to support their recovery.
In this free webinar the co-leads of our recent guidance paper on meeting the psychological needs of people recovering from severe Coronavirus will explore how to support the rehabilitation of patients in greater depth.
Hosted by David Murphy, President of the British Psychological Society, and Dr Dorothy Wade, Principal Health Psychologist, Critical Care, at UCLH NHS Trust, the webinar will cover:
- understanding of the psychological aspects of recovery
- risk factors of ongoing psychological difficulties
- best practice in approaching psychological care
06 May 2020, 16:00 -17:00 (Online)
Registration is free and available online only.
The webinar is open to all, but tailored to meet the needs of professionals working in health and social care, including doctors, GPs, critical care nurses, intensive care professionals, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and care providers.
