Presenter(s): A Collaborative Project of ASHA Professional Development and SIG 13, Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia)
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: Speech-language pathologists working in health care are faced with many challenges, including an ever-changing reimbursement and regulatory landscape and varied patient population. These challenges require ongoing education and training, as well as knowledge of evidence-based practices and appropriate roles and responsibilities. This self-study addresses issues that SLPs working with dysphagia need to consider so that they can help their patients achieve the best possible clinical outcomes. The course begins with a discussion of the role of the SLP in addressing cough and then delves into a further discussion of sensory processing and how that may affect swallowing. It continues with a detailed description of issues the SLP must consider in long-term care settings and when providing palliative care. SLPs working with individuals with dysphagia can use this information to improve services and advocate for their role in the challenging health care environment.

Summary: This course provides an overview of the documentation requirements for Medicare reimbursement for dysphagia-related services, including evaluation, treatment plans, treatment notes, progress notes, discharge summaries, and common diagnostic and procedure codes. The speaker discusses frameworks – including the SMART and International Classification of Functioning, Disability, and Health (ICF) frameworks – to help focus treatment plans on meaningful, measureable, and functional goals, giving examples of long- and short-term goals. The course also includes tips for streamlining documentation and suggestions for documenting progress to show skilled service.

Summary: This course includes five recorded sessions from the 2016 online conference “Maximizing Functional Outcomes for Patients With Dementia.” These sessions focus on key components of functional assessment and treatment of dementia within the constraints of current service delivery models. The conference included a total of 13 sessions, with the broad goal of describing a range of evidence-based clinical care techniques to get to the heart of patient-centered dementia care.

Summary: Noise exposure and aging are common causes of acquired sensorineural hearing loss, marked by damaged hair cells and evident in threshold audiograms. Recent studies have shown that well before overt hearing loss is apparent, a more insidious process frequently occurs, one that doesn’t kill hair cells, but instead permanently interrupts their communication with cochlear neurons. This cochlear synaptic loss can be dramatic, even in ears with normal threshold audiograms, where it has been called “hidden hearing loss.” This webinar will review hidden and overt effects of noise and aging on the ear and hearing, focusing on documented synaptopathic and neurodegenerative outcomes and predicted functional consequences, including speech-in noise difficulties, tinnitus, and hyperacusis.

Summary: This session provides an interdisciplinary (audiology, otology, and physical therapy) perspective on management of patients with dizziness, specifically geared toward cutting-edge management techniques and recommendations for care. The panel presentation discusses surgical and nonsurgical approaches and clinical cases to highlight patient benefits and improved clinical outcomes. A question-and-answer period concludes the presentation. This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention. The session was developed by, and presenters invited by, Hearing, Vestibular, Tinnitus - Assessment and Intervention: Adult.

Summary: Comprehensive auditory rehabilitation for adults includes communication strategies, assistive listening devices, perceptual training, and supportive counseling. The problem-solving format allows an engaging and patient-centered means of addressing communication strategies and counseling needs. This presentation addresses the organization of problem-solving using the problem-solving approach (SOS); distance, angle, reverberation, and noise (DARN); and thinking, emotional response, and action (TEA). This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention.

Summary: This on demand webinar covers the latest speech-language pathology CPT and ICD-10 coding and payment updates and provides a targeted review of the 2022 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule and its impact on payment for speech-language pathology services. Speakers review key health care payment compliance guidelines related to coding, billing, and supervision as well as tackle complex coding, payment, claims, and compliance scenarios submitted by clinicians throughout the year.

Summary: Many seniors are exposed to considerable amounts of information about hearing loss and hearing health and can find it difficult to separate facts from fiction. Meanwhile, others do not get enough information about these important topics. This webinar will explore educational tools and resources to help older adults meet their individual communication needs. The presenter will share information and resources that you can pass on to your patients regarding hearing aids and the brain, as well as tools to promote healthy hearing as patients age.

Summary: Despite advances in hearing technology and intervention, language, academic, and social outcomes in children with hearing loss generally lag behind those of their hearing counterparts. Providing differential diagnoses is challenging, given the cascading effects of auditory deprivation language delays. This presentation identifies commonly occurring comorbid presentations in children with hearing loss and describes the process of effectively making differential diagnoses. This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention.

Summary: The evaluation and non-medical management of balance disorders in children and adults is an exciting and growing opportunity for audiologists to participate in this important aspect of health care services. This presentation highlights the most common conditions throughout the life span from neonate to geriatric and includes an evidence-based clinical pathway model of gold-standard evaluation protocols and management strategies. This course was presented and recorded at the 2019 ASHA Convention. This session was developed by, and presenter invited by, SIG 6: Hearing and Hearing Disorders: Research and Diagnostics.
