Vaccine Update for Healthcare Providers

In late March 2022, the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NAS) convened a workshop sponsored by the Social Security Administration to discuss emerging findings from early research on “long COVID” and to identify knowledge gaps and needs.

The resulting publication follows the progression of workshop topics:

  • Overview of long COVID and disability
  • Post-acute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection and implications for recovery
  • Patient and caregiver perspectives on living with long COVID
  • Long-term impairments and functional limitations related to long COVID
  • Clinical practices and system approaches for improving health and recovery from long COVID
  • Exploring future directions in the treatment of long COVID

If you are interested in the state of the science related to the lingering effects of COVID-19 infection, this publication will be a useful resource.
