In this session the main focus is to enable participants to have discussions with colleagues on three items:
1. How are we managing COVID in our daily clinical work?
2. How are we facing the challenges of the long lasting symptoms of COVID-19 often referred to as Long Covid ?
3. What are the problems and possible solutions of managing COVID-19 in migrants?
This session will start with presentations then go into breakout rooms enabling you to listen, share and reflect upon experiences from colleagues across Europe.
During the presentations, Dr Nisreen Alwan, an associate professor from the University of Southampton, will inform you on the long-term effects of COVID-19. A considerable number of patients are suffering from long COVID-19. She will discuss the challenges of this new syndrome and it’s implications for daily practice.
Prof Maria van den Muijsenbergh, an academic GP from the Netherlands, has extensive experience in caring for refugees and other vulnerable migrants. In her talk, she will highlight some specific issues when caring for migrant patients with COVID. Her practical tips will help GPs to provide person centered culturally sensitive care for their patients.
This Round Table will enable you to exchange views, discuss different approaches and learn from each other. In short, the very reason many of you decided to join this WONCA congress!
Session organised by the International Primary Care Respiratory Group (IPCRG), the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI) primary care working group and the General practice Research on Infections Network (GRIN)
