August 7–August 19, 2019
Get the know-how to provide effective SLP services to children and adults with cancer.
This comprehensive online conference explores practical topics related to caring for adult and pediatric patients with a current or past cancer diagnosis. This first-of-its-kind conference brings together multiple disciplines to give SLPs a broad understanding of different cancer types and treatments and how speech-language pathology services fit in.
The conference takes a holistic look at what SLP services oncology patients of different ages and stages might need – from swallowing and cognition, to speech and voice, to language. The conference also includes sessions that speak to related areas of importance to SLPs, including nutrition and end-of-life care. SLPs will walk away with new tools and strategies they can use as part of a care team to provide effective assessment and treatment and enhance the quality of life for these unique populations.
We estimate that you'll be able to earn as many as 3.45 ASHA CEUs (34.5 professional development hours) for this event. Get CE details.
