Cases of COVID-19 are spiking around the world. As tens of thousands of people cope with COVID-19 at home and in more serious cases, in the hospital, families are being faced with caring for themselves and loved ones before, during and after illness.

Many are facing serious challenges on the road to full recovery--and many feel their lives will never be the same. Our Michigan Medicine experts are studying caregiving of patients with COVID-19 and offer advice, from learning how to manage with isolation and quarantine, to hospitalization, to what happens after the initial illness subsides and the long-term recovery journey.

Experts featured in this webinar: Dr. Sheria Robinson-Lane, Assistant Professor of Nursing; Dr. Amanda Leggett, Research Assistant Professor of Psychiatry; and Dr. Jack Iwashyna, Professor of Internal Medicine in the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine.

The three faculty members above are all collaborators on a research study looking at patients who were in the ICU with COVID and their caregivers. Visit the study website.
