Research Summary

Dr Chao Fang works as a research fellow conducting a longitudinal qualitative research project on long-Covid. Being part of the NIHR-UKRI funded Convalescence Long-COVID Study, Chao will work with researchers from the University of York and many other institutions to conduct approximately 300 interviews with long Covid patients, their close others and healthcare professionals across three waves of interviews between 2021 and 2023 (100 interviews per wave). Chao will play a significant role in this exciting project, exploring long Covid not only as an array of physio-cognitive symptoms but also as an emotionally laden and socially meaningful experience. The research findings will be used to inform and improve support and care in social and health care settings to better accommodate long Covid patients’ multifaceted needs in their ongoing lives.
