The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has led to a global pandemic affecting a large proportion of the countries of the world. As front line practitioners, it is likely that physiotherapists and physical therapists will come into direct contact with patients that are infected by this virus. It is therefore essential that they understand the many aspects of their role in identifying, containing, mitigating and treating the symptoms of this disease. This includes implementing methods to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, initiating early identification strategies, and dealing with identified cases appropriately in the clinic and home environments. Note: a detailed review of the physiotherapy respiratory care of these patients will be addressed in a subsequent course.
This course aims to provide you with an understanding of the role physiotherapists can play in managing issues related to the COVID-19 disease from case identification, limiting transmission in different clinical settings and treating patients with mild symptoms.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
