PASC Consensus Guidance

Members & Publications

The Academy has undertaken comprehensive efforts to support our call for a national plan to address Post-Acute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection (PASC or Long COVID) and the 3 to 10 million Americans it is affecting.  

AAPM&R understands the need for focused, meaningful, and ongoing clinical exchange between the medical community to assess and implement appropriate clinical practice for treating and following all long-term COVID issues, not just those issues requiring PM&R intervention, is necessary. Therefore, AAPM&R has gathered a multidisciplinary collaborative with goals to foster engagement and share experiences to propel the health system towards defining standards of care for persons experiencing Long COVID-19/PASC.

Published Guidance

The collaborative is working to publish guidance on a rolling basis. Writing groups are working within a consensus process with 3 waves. All published guidance will be linked here as it becomes available.
