Case Reflections: Diagnosis and Treatment of 4 Professional Performers Attending a Specialist SLT-Led Performers’ Voice Clinic at a Tertiary Level London Hospital

Thursday 13th July 2023, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM (London Time)

In a voice clinic setting, case studies are a valuable tool for several reasons. Firstly, they provide a detailed examination of a particular patient's voice disorder, including the patient's symptoms, medical history, examination findings, and treatment outcomes. This information can be used to inform the clinical decision-making process and to develop more effective treatment plans for future patients with similar conditions.

Case studies can also be used to build knowledge and understanding of voice disorders, including the causes, risk factors, and treatments. They can help to identify best practices, challenge existing beliefs, and promote new thinking in the field.

This course will offer an insight into the diagnosis and treatment plan of four professional singers and the role that the specialist Speech and Language Therapist might play in the process.
