The Dynamic Larynx: A Tutorial in Laryngeal Dissection for Speech Language Pathologist with Translation to Voice and Dysphagia Therapy

Speech Language Pathologists are often limited in their hands on exposure to the larynx.  Few graduate programs offer courses in laryngeal dissection and opportunities to observe surgery are often few for the practicing clinician.  There are no other courses offered in the United States that allow the Speech Language Pathologist to participate in laryngeal dissection then to take that knowledge into the clinical realm through use of the clinical tools they use everyday (e.g., videostroboscopy, FEES, and directed laryngeal manipulation used in therapy).  Upon completion of the course, the participant will visualize the laryngeal muscles and cartilages of a cadaver larynges to gain a better understanding of the dimensionality and motion of the laryngeal structures.  The participant will also be able to describe the five layer structure of the vocal folds through the use of videostroboscopy and describe laryngeal motion during the swallow when using flexibe endoscopic evaluations.  Lastly, the participant will understand the motion of the laryngeal structures through directed manipulation.  (ASHA CEUs: 1.2; beginner to intermediate level, professional area)

This course is approved for 1.2 ASHA CEU's (Intermediate-Professional Level).

Laryngeal Dissection and Phonosurgery Workshop

This course is desinged to offer practicing Otolaryngologists and Otolaryngologists-in-training advanced instruction in laryngeal surgical procedures.  Three hours of didactic material will cover awake laryngeal procedures, endoscopic phonomicrosurgery, and laryngeal framework surgery.  This will be followed by four hours of hands-on instruction in the cadaveric dissection laboratory for supervised practice f the breadth of laryngeal surgical procedures.  Course registration includes hardcover Laryngeal Dissection and Phonosurgical Atlas by course directors Adam M. Klein, M.D., and Michael M. Johns, III, M.D.  Following completion of this instructional course, participants will be able to demonstrate endoscopic and percutaneous approaches to injection laryngoplasty and the basic skills necessary to perform endoscopic microsurgery adn laryngeal framework surgery.  Participants will also be able to describe the techniques of awake laryngeal biopsy, panendoscopy, botulinum toxin injection, and fiber-based laser therapy.

Laryngeal Imaging and FEES Workshop

A two-day, hands-on workshop for Otolaryngologists, Speech Language Pathologists, Physician's Assistants, and Nurse Practioners interested in performing laryngeal imaging examinations, videostroboscopy, and FEES.  The weekend will include didactic and laboratory sessions.  There will be six hours of guided hands-on laboratory practice time in small groups.  Day one didactic sessions will feature lectures on flexible and rigid laryngoscopy, stroboscopy, and interpretation.  The didactic sessions on day two will be discipline specific.  Track one will feature lectures on anesthetizing the larynx and subglottal space, otolaryngology in-office procedure, and report generation and billing for Otolaryngologists.  Track two will feature lectures on anesthesia and the SLP, report generation and billing for the SLP, and FEES.  Hands-on practice in interpretation will be emphasized and participants will have the opportunity for interpretation practice in small groups.  Exhibitors will display an array of state-of-the-art instrumentation, endoscopes, and literature pertinent to laryngeal imaging and voice evaluations.  (ASHA CEU and CME credits provided by Emory University)

Course Director:  Edie R. Hapner, PhD

Fee:  $425 (Registration opens December 1, 2010.  Fee includes all materials and meals.  Course has limited registration to allow for small group, hands-on practice.)
