Long Covid Research – ISCoS 2021

A qualitative research abstract about ‘Long Covid’ has just been successfully accepted for poster presentation at the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) Annual Scientific Meeting 2021.

‘COVID-19 survivorship: A qualitative study of persistent symptoms or ‘Long Covid’ experienced by spinal cord injury survivors in Bangladesh’ will be presented by NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow, Karen Saunders and FRCP Neuro-rehab Director Service Lead, Dr Mohamed Sakel.

This research study focused on survivors’ experience of ‘Long Covid’ during the pandemic and how their lives were affected. The knowledge generated will also help in the design of a similar study for spinal patients in Kent and Medway.
