This course defines cultural and linguistic competency and related terms, and presents factors that may affect the ability to provide culturally and linguistically competent care. This course addresses the need for self-awareness in culturally and linguistically competent medical care, the differences between disease and illness, and factors that may influence a patient's experience of illness as well as the health beliefs and practices of some cultures. An approach to eliciting a patient’s cultural health beliefs in order to aid delivery of culturally appropriate treatments will be discussed.

Listening Effort, Fatigue, Social Isolation, & Dementia: Correlates of Age Related Hearing Loss
Presented by Barbara E. Weinstein, PhD
Video
Course: #8503 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
A hallmark of age related hearing loss is difficulty understanding in noisy environments. The difficulty requires significant listening effort on the listener’s part which, when prolonged, is associated with fatigue. The fatigue in combination with the listening effort and cognitive load often leads people to withdraw from social situations. Social disengagement has many downstream negative outcomes - including dementia - that will be discussed, along with simple solutions for clinical practice.

Aspiration Pneumonia: It's Not Just Aspiration
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Live WebinarTue, Sep 11, 2018 at 2:00 pm EDT
Course: #8578 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Do dysphagia and aspiration inevitably lead to aspiration pneumonia? Our current evidence base suggests that the answer is, in fact, no. This course will enable clinicians to identify the clients on their caseload who are at higher risk for illness and to identify and address those risk factors that can be modified to reduce the likelihood of aspiration-related illness.

I Tossed the Workbooks, Now What? How to meet functional cognitive goals using evidence-based frameworks in neurogenic disorders
Presented by Sarah Baar, MA, CCC-SLP
Video
Course: #8502 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Workbooks, card games, and board games are often readily available for use in speech therapy to treat cognition in neurogenic disorders; however, these treatment methods are not in line with the most recent research for best practices in acquired brain injury (ABI). This course offers evidence, support and practical ideas for embedding functional treatment into current evidence-based frameworks for neurogenic disorders.

Speech Language Pathologists are often asked to make recommendations for safe swallowing of medications for patients with dysphagia, but have limited information about pharmacodynamics. This course will provide clinicians with the information they need to understand and manage swallowing-related medication effects, identify potential impacts of food and thickener on medication effectiveness, and prevent medication errors in their clients with dysphagia.
