Long-COVID Self Care Toolkit The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in five people who get COVID-19 have lingering symptoms, some of which are severe. Much like the virus itself, the medical community continues to learn more about the condition, commonly referred to as long COVID. Alliant Health Solutions created an easy-to-follow self-care toolkit for patients with the most recognized symptoms and self-care and advocacy recommendations. Download the toolkit to print or share with others.
Long-COVID Infographic/Education Resources The NCRN website features a brief video and handouts about long COVID, with easy to understand infographics ready to print and display in facilities.
Immunization Trivia Kit Alliant Health Solutions developed an immunization trivia kit for seniors with questions, answers, explanations and ideas for use. This is a fun and educational resource to engage with patients. This kit focuses on the various immunizations needed to stay healthy, but could be adapted by your team to educate on a variety of dialysis topics.
