Treatment and rehabilitation of Long COVID: a scope of the RCT literature: July 2022

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


• We identified 14 randomised controlled trials published in the last six months, which examined the effectiveness of a range of interventions focused on Long COVID treatment or rehabilitation.
• Across trials, the post COVID period ranged widely from a few weeks after symptom onset or diagnosis to several months post recovery from active infection or hospital discharge.
• Trial quality varied and inadequate reporting of methods frequently precluded a full assessment of the risk of bias. However, six trials were rated positively for at least 75% of the domains we assessed.
