QAPC Update

Dear QAPC participants,

Thank you very much for your participation in this important project.  Your engagement has allowed us to more fully understand the impact that COVID and the post-COVID syndrome has had on the lives of people affected.  A summary of the main findings can be found at this link https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2023.05.27.23290638v1.

We also looked very closely at mental health symptoms and fatigue. A description of the mental health profile can be found at this link. https://www.medrxiv.org/search/mayo%252Bn%252Bcovid

We also looked at what happened over time with fatigue.  For people who continued to provide information about this important symptom, we noted that a proportion of people with the highest level of fatigue continued with the experience over the duration of the study which was 18 months.  This experience has been reported by other researchers pointing out the need for a deeper understanding of post-COVID fatigue which is a topic of concern of many researchers.

Again, thank you for your participation.

About QAPC

The purpose of the project is to create a functional profile of people with post-COVID-19 syndrome to guide self-management and to prioritize people for more in-depth assessment.

We’re building a province-wide study to support research on the post-COVID-19 syndrome. Join the search for answers.

Participate in Research

The QAPC study is no longer recruiting new participants.

If you are already registered, please continue your participation so we can track how the Post-COVID Syndrome evolves.

Thank you for your continued participation.
