Event details

We are pleased to let you know that Elizabeth Murray, Professor of eHealth and Primary Care will deliver a seminar entitled “Living With Covid Recovery: Development, Deployment and Evaluation of digitally-enabled, remote, supported rehabilitation for people with Long Covid.”

Elizabeth Murray is a GP by background, Professor of eHealth and Primary Care, Co-Director of the eHealth Unit and Clinical Director of the UCL Institute for Healthcare Engineering.  She has over 20 years of experience of research digital health, with a particular focus on developing, implementing and evaluating digital health interventions (DHI).  She is a strong proponent of inter-disciplinary working, learning from engineering, computer, behavioural and social sciences; and of working with patients and the public (PPI).  Her grant income for the past 5 years is around £20 million and she has over 200 publications with an h-index of 62.

Abstract
Long Covid, or post-covid syndrome, is a distressing and disabling condition which can persist for months after an initial Covid infection, and prevent individuals from returning to work, or engaging in daily activities such as caring for their families.  Although it is a highly variable condition, most patients experience the core symptoms of fatigue, breathlessness, “brain fog” and anxiety or low mood.  These symptoms are amenable to rehabilitation treatments, but physical and mental health rehabilitation services are fully stretched and are struggling to meet the demand. 

In this seminar, Elizabeth will present the NIHR-funded work on Living With Covid Recovery, including describing the iterative development of the intervention, using User-Centred Design and Human-Computer Interaction approaches; its deployment in the NHS in England; and some early outcomes from the evaluation. 

Our seminars are by invitation only, if you would like to attend please contact Elena.
