Patients have been at the forefront of identifying and addressing Long COVID since it was first reported in the spring of 2020. Today, their experiences and expertise remain a crucial resource for clinicians, public health workers, and others mounting a response to this widespread chronic manifestation of the global pandemic for which their remain few effective clinical interventions. In this seminar, we will summarize the global impact of Long COVID; explore themes emerging from qualitative health experiences research in the USA; share a montage of interview clips from similar research in 8 countries around the world; and discuss the promise and pitfalls associated with narrative evidence.
Dr Rachel Grob directs the Qualitative and Health Experiences Research Lab at the University of Wisconsin’s Department of Family Medicine and Community Health and Center for Patient Partnerships.
