'People with Long Covid need compassion and science, which is what Steven delivers.' Dr Norman Swan

'There is an enormous need for practical and evidence-based information on the understanding and management of Long Covid. This book fills this gap, in a highly accessible, personalised and well-organised manner.' Professor Gregory Dore, Infectious Diseases Physician, St Vincent's Hospital

In a few short years, Long Covid has established itself as one of our most significant health issues, estimated to have affected up to 1 million Australians - and studies suggest that this number is rising. Until now, the lack of understanding and information around this chronic condition has meant that people have largely suffered in silence.

Here for the first time is a comprehensive overview of the disease. Written by Professor Steven Faux AM, one of Australia's leading experts on the treatment of Long Covid, this complete guide draws on up-to-the-minute research, providing:

advice on diagnosis, key risk factors and prevention
the very latest on how to identify and manage symptoms
tips for staying positive and dealing with uncertainty
an overview of treatment options, for the short and long term, to ensure ongoing health and recovery
compelling case studies from Australians of all ages living with Long Covid.

This book is essential reading for those experiencing ongoing symptoms following a COVID-19 infection, their loved ones, and the thousands of health professionals trying to navigate this disease on behalf of their patients.
