In the wake of COVID-19, primary care practitioners face new challenges in managing COVID-19 positive patients presenting with respiratory issues.

This webinar, a collaboration between Thrombosis UK, Primary Care Cardiovascular Society (PCCS) and will consider:

What is the pathway and action for primary care managing acute but not hospitalised thrombosis and patients late presenting with respiratory symptoms?

Presentation and discussion will include:

  1. Guidance on investigating and managing respiratory issues in a patient when acutely unwell with COVID-19.
  2. Considerations for the management of asymptomatic / mildly unwell COVID-19 positive patients with a previous history of thrombosis.
  3. General management of respiratory issues during recovery from COVID-19.
