The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us how important effective teamwork in healthcare is. Across the world various members of the healthcare community are working as part of multidisciplinary teams in the treatment and the rehabilitation of patients with COVID-19. Physiotherapists play an important part in this fight, but together with physiotherapists there are many other healthcare providers, such as speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, dietitians, physicians, nurses and psychologists. All of these multidisciplinary team members are essential in delivering the best possible care. The multidisciplinary approach in the management and rehabilitation of COVID-19 patients is paramount!
The aim of this course is to provide a clear and comprehensive understanding of the roles of various allied health professionals as part of the multidisciplinary team in the management of COVID-19 patients.
