Speech, Language, Cognitive, and Swallowing Rehabilitation in Patients With Brain Tumors (WEB19064)

Presenter(s): Jaimie Payne, MS, CCC-SLP
Course Description

Neurocognitive and communication rehabilitation in patients with brain tumors is different than recovery after stroke or traumatic brain injury. This session describes basic characteristics of various types of brain tumors, current treatment options, associated sequale, and expected prognosis. Diagnostic and rehabilitation considerations are reviewed as they relate to speech, language, cognition, and swallowing to help inform the most effective SLP treatment plan. This course is a recorded session from the 2019 online conference “Cancer Care: Enhancing Communication, Swallowing, and Quality of Life.”
