Therapists play a vital role in treating patients with COVID-19 as they progress beyond acute care and through the rehabilitation phase. This course focuses on the clinical therapy management of patients in rehabilitation, homecare, and SNF settings with debility and neurological conditions related to COVID-19. Discussions will focus on the various ways the medical care and therapy services can adjust services and how these adjustments will affect the rehabilitation outcomes of those patients.
