Respiratory Muscle Strength Clinical Training Workshop (AustralianTime Zone) presented by Christine Sapienza, Ph.D, CCC - SLP
This webinar has been scheduled to accommodate our fellow SLP's in Australia.
Learning Outcomes -
Participants will be able to: Identify key anatomical and physiologic components of respiration, swallow and cough. 1).Determine effectiveness of RMST for patient care. 2) Demonstrate the ability to assess key measures of respiratory strength and relate these to RMST protocols. 3) Demonstrate knowledge of devices for RMST and advantages/disadvantages with various patient groups. 4)Demonstrate ability to plan and implement RMST protocols for patients. 5) Demonstrate ability to assess RMST outcomes in terms of respiratory muscle strength, swallow and cough.
