Social Science & Medicine
To understand the experiences of individuals with long COVID, or "long-haulers," we mapped individual journeys towards providing a framework for potential healthcare interventions by mapping personal patient journeys. The resulting dimensions of patient agency and social support highlight the importance of person-centred interventions considering patients' unique experiences and environments.

I acknowledge the peoples on whose lands I conduct my work, and respectfully acknowledge  Ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging.
