CICOA Envision Lecture: Surviving COVID-19: Long-Term Cognitive and Mental Health Effects on Patients and Their Caregivers
Presenter: Dr. Sophia Wang, Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychiatry, Indiana University School of Medicine, and Outreach and Recruitment Core Leader, NIA-designated Indiana Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center
Hospitalization in the intensive care unit (ICU) for COVID-19 can result in cognitive, psychological, and physical impairments, known as post-intensive care syndrome. In this talk, Dr. Wang will discuss the long-term effects of ICU hospitalization on patients and how it can affect their caregivers, both in the hospital and after patients return home. She will also discuss how these experiences may differ between older and younger patients.
