Mental Health During COVID-19 Part 1: Rehab Patients and Caregivers


This pre-recorded panel discussion, hosted in partnership with the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN), is designed to help viewers understand and address the mental health and psychosocial challenges of patients, family and caregivers who are dealing with COVID-19 related illness. In part one

Both panel members have a unique perspective on COVID-19 due to geographic location, the size of their organization, as well as personal experiences with both patients and caregivers in the rehab setting.
