Description

NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY LARYNGEAL IMAGING COURSE: PERFORMANCE & INTERPRETATION OF VIDEOSTROBOSCOPY


COURSE DESCRIPTION

This two-day workshop is designed for speech-language pathologists and otolaryngologists interested in developing and refining technical performance and interpretation of laryngeal videostroboscopic exams. Participants will learn techniques to optimize their skills in both rigid and flexible endoscopy, begin to obtain and interpret essential stroboscopic information, and learn to use exam findings to guide treatment. In addition to 6 hours of hands-on practice under direct guidance of experienced course faculty members, the course will provide information covering perceptual analysis, ways to troubleshoot difficult exams, equipment, documentation, and billing considerations. This course has a maximum capacity for registration, so it is advised to register early.

This is not a CME-accredited course. ASHA CEU’s only.

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Describe anatomy and physiology of voice production

  • Describe a headshot protocol and rationale for completion

  • List and describe components of a rigid stroboscopic examination protocol and provide rationale for completion

  • List and describe components of a flexible stroboscopic examination protocol and provide rationale for completion

  • Discuss ways to improve suboptimal endoscopic exams in order to optimize imaging ability

  • Demonstrate performance of both rigid and flexible endoscopy

  • List necessary equipment required to complete a comprehensive stroboscopic evaluation

  • List tools and methods to perform perceptual voice analysis

  • Demonstrate emerging ability to perform perceptual voice analysis

  • Differentiate between laryngoscopic and stroboscopic findings

  • List laryngeal findings commonly seen on endoscopy

  • Demonstrate emerging ability to accurately describe laryngoscopic findings within the scope of practice of a speech-language pathologist

  • List and describe individual components of stroboscopy

  • Demonstrate emerging ability to accurately describe stroboscopic findings when presented with case presentations

  • Demonstrate ability to accurately document laryngoscopic and stroboscopic exam findings in reports

  • List and describe components of a comprehensive voice evaluation

  • Demonstrate ability to troubleshoot difficult rigid and flexible endoscopic exams

  • Demonstrate understanding of legal considerations when performing rigid and flexible endoscopy and stroboscopy within the scope of practice of a speech-language pathologist

  • Demonstrate understanding of billing considerations when performing rigid and flexible endoscopy and stroboscopy

  • Demonstrate understanding of infection control considerations with rigid and flexible endoscopes

  • Demonstrate emerging ability to describe how laryngoscopic and stroboscopic findings guide treatment

*These objectives will slightly vary for attendees who chose the lecture only ticket option.
