Cancer Care: Enhancing Communication, Swallowing, and Quality of Life

August 7–19, 2019 | Online Conference for SLPs

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.
