TFV Webinar - "Maximizing Voice and Swallowing Function in Head and Neck Cancer" - Shared screen with speaker view
Up to 110 attendees so far
Wow. Yes I see 122 participants!
Amazing really for WED night in the middle of summer…
Yes! Going well! We usually get 1/2 of what signed up, so we are right on target
Sorry Melda! Did I interrupt you?
question: who pays for rehab as some patients dont have insurance coverage for it
Vocal rehab for cancer patients is generally not as much of an issue from a coverage perspective as it is for some other underlying vocal issues like MTD
It is important for the rehab team to advocate for these services with the insurance companies.
We go until 9p Eastern/6p Pacific, correct?
Question: does the SLP attend tumor board and if so, what do they contribute to the discussion?
Yes, we do. We will try to discuss the functional implications of treatment options
Question: do you have a set protocol for voice and swallowing exercises?
Question: do patient pay for EMST out of pocket?
There is some variety depending on prophylactic versus reactive. I have a recent publication that outlines what we do prophylactically that I am happy to share if you don’t have access
Yes, patients pay out of pocket
