Targeted Telephone Outreach, Health Education, and Resource Coordination for People Living with Long COVID
This Advanced Topics training is Retired. This information is for historical reference only.
In addition to the live virtual training, learners must complete approximately 3.5 hours of online-self study.
As many as one in five adults who’ve had COVID-19 still have symptoms lasting more than three months after first contracting the virus.
The goal of this training is to prepare staff of local health departments and state employees to call people who have tested positive for COVID-19, educate them about long-COVID, and support those in need to access resources.
In this training, you will learn to:
- Educate clients about long COVID.
- Share information about resources for people living with long-COVID, including medical care, disability rights, peer support, and “pacing” techniques.
- Use health coaching to provide client-centered support for managing long-COVID.
Target Learners: This course is intended for COVID-19 case investigators, contact tracers, and other non-medical communicable disease intervention staff of local health jurisdictions in California may be tasked to query historical case lists and perform “recovery” calls to people who have tested positive for COVID19.
Languages: This training is currently offered in English.
