Current Clinical Trial

Brain Health in Survivors of COVID-19 and their Caregivers

Type of study: Longitudinal Cohort
The McCance Center for Brain Health aims to learn more about the impact of COVID-19 on the brain health of patients, their caregivers, and legally authorized representatives. We will assess their cognitive, emotional, and physical recovery every three months for 12 months post-discharge or post-first encounter with a clinician in the post-COVID Brain Health Clinic, hoping to identify brain health needs and investigate treatment options to prevent brain disease or restore brain health after acute illness caused by COVID-19. Call the McCance Clinic at 617-726-4881 to learn more.

Coming to the Clinic

The McCance Center’s expert clinical team provides consultation services in neurology and neuropsychiatry to evaluate, treat, and conduct research on COVID-19-related neurological complications.

Patients with confirmed COVID-19 (either via PCR and/or an antibody test) may be referred to members of our clinical team for the following: cognitive impairment, attention and word finding difficulties, executive dysfunction, memory loss, insomnia, depression and anxiety. If you have additional symptoms please consult with your PCP to be screened for the appropriate clinics in the MGB system for Post Acute Covid Syndrome.

First Appointment/Assessment

Our post-COVID 19 service is a multidisciplinary clinic. You will be assigned to one doctor in our team who will assess thoroughly and accordingly send you to ancillary services such as OT/PT/Mindfulness training, prescribe medications, or refer you for neuromodulation or other consultative services. Your doctor will also present the current research trails the Center is undertaking. If you are willing to participate in those research trials then you’ll be contacted separately by our research team to proceed with your enrolment.
