Why does C-support want to work together?
We don’t know much yet about long COVID. Why do some people suffer from long-term symptoms after being infected with COVID-19? And how many people are suffering from long-term symptoms? It is important to work together and share knowledge and insights. To be able to limit the impact of long COVID to the extent possible. That is one of the lessons learned from the Q fever epidemic. Back then, aftercare was only provided six months after the outbreak of Q fever. That was too late for many people. To prevent worse from happening, timely aftercare is essential when recovering from an infectious disease.
Who are we working together with?
C-support is a network organization. We are working together with all (healthcare) professionals that are providing care to a patient. From GPs, company doctors, insurance doctors and medical specialists to social support consultants. But also, with umbrella organizations for healthcare professionals and organizations such as the Dutch Employee Insurance Agency, Center for Work and Health, Lung Alliance Netherlands and the Dutch Lung Foundation. We can only address the long-term corona symptoms across all areas of life if we work together.
How can C-support help you?
We provide various kinds of support and advice. For example, you can consult one of our medical consultants regarding the long-term symptoms your patient(s) is/are suffering. We regularly consult with GPs, medical specialists and company doctors.
C-academy: education and research
C-support doesn’t have a special research budget, but we do promote research into (the symptoms of) COVID-19 by means of our C-academy. Furthermore, we assess research requests, for example for ZonMw. And our aftercare and medical consultants provide (refresher) training via the C-academy. They can also help you organize your own training session. Or offer you customized refresher courses.
Do you have any questions about the C-academy? Do you want to work together with C-support? Or do you want to talk to one of our medical consultants? Please contact us.
