This session will summarize the opportunities for rehabilitation teams to enhance recovery for patients suffering from prolonged symptoms and functional impairment after COVID-19 infection. It will highlight a patient perspective and the literature around prolonged symptoms both for those admitted to hospital and managed in the community. The challenges of resuming pulmonary rehabilitation will be discussed alongside any novel ways pulmonary rehabilitation is being delivered internationally. 

CME credits and/or Certificates of Completion are not provided for this session.
