Long Covid: A Public Health and Occupational Emergency

The Covid-19 pandemic continues to spread unabated around the world due to a near complete abandonment of public health measures and dissembling about the ongoing pandemic. Repeated surges in Covid infections, hospitalizations, and deaths put nurses and other health care workers at heightened and perpetual risk for infection and moral injury. As more individuals are continually exposed to and infected by SARS-CoV-2, reports of long-term health consequences have also increased (long Covid). This CE class will discuss the latest scientific updates about long Covid and the implications of these scientific updates for nurses, their patients, and advocacy for safe patient care.
