This report aims to summarise the evidence on the rehabilitation needs of COVID-19 patients who have been in intensive care, and how health systems could deliver services to meet these needs.
Overview of findings
There are no studies reporting empirical data on rehabilitation and care needs after COVID19. A few reports set out recommendations to provide rehabilitation services, and some studies on post intensive care syndrome may report useful information, though they may not be specifically related to COVID-19.
