Long COVID course
25 Mar 2021
As we all know, we are living through a very difficult time. Unfortunately we as rehabilitation professionals will be helping our clients deal with the impacts of the COVID pandemic for a long period to come. To help our community of clinicians come to terms with this new emerging role we reached out to Darren Brown who despite living with Long COVID himself, has helped us to develop an amazing introductory course on this important and developing topic. We hope that you find this course helpful for your practice and your clients.
