Empowering SLPs to Adopt Telepractice for Dysphagia Care (PD102268)

Presenter(s): Georgia A. Malandraki, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Course Description

While the use of telepractice for dysphagia management has increased considerably due to restrictions on in-person practice during the COVID-19 pandemic, challenges still exist. This session discusses the remaining barriers to the adoption of telehealth for dysphagia services and ways to overcome them. The speaker explains an evaluation and decision-making process clinicians can use to determine if the adoption of telepractice for dysphagia care is right for them and discusses ways to advocate for and start developing telepractice models of care in a variety of health care settings.

This course is a recorded session from the 2021 online conference “Empowered SLPs in Health Care: Breaking Barriers and Shaping Solutions.”
