A very generous summary from Diana Hopkins-Rosseel (School of Rehabilitation Therapy, Queen's University)

We need to remember that this may be our last chance to make it clear to the public, referral sources, and insurers that we are the profession positioned to take on post-COVID-19 hospital discharge and post-isolation management towards return of optimal function. We have submitted two grants to that effect but I don’t see this in the clinical realm. We need to shout from the rafters. It then becomes a broadening of our private scope (i.e. chronic disease prevention and management, thoracic assessment, and intervention – musculoskeletal paired with pulmonary/cardiac).

Here are the very best COVID-19 rehab resources:
