Project Summary

The COGER study is collecting data to gain insight into the course of functional and medical recovery in older people affected by COVID-19 participating in rehabilitation across Europe.
The COGER study, designed by members of the Special Interest Group for Geriatric Rehabilitation of the European Geriatric Medical Society (EuGMS), study aims to:
1. Explore the course of activities of daily living (ADL) recovery and influencing factors
2. Describe other outcomes after geriatric rehabilitation in post-COVID-19 patients
3. Describe geriatric rehabilitation services provided to post COVID-19 patients across Europe.

The study group are presently looking for rehabilitation services to volunteer to support the work. Please contact us if you are interested in doing so.

Outputs / Expected Outputs
  • Insight into recovery of post-COVID patients during and after admission to geriatric rehabilitation. Functioning and quality of life will be our main outcomes.
  • Insight into the contend of COVID rehabilitation care in various European countries: which treatments are given and which professionals are involved? What works, and what does not?
