Burke is offering the Respiratory Muscle Training for the MedSLP course with Brooke Richardson, MS, CCC-SLP on June 2, 2019. 

Respiratory Muscle Training for the MedSLP combines lecture, critical thinking through case studies, and hands-on practice. Participants will learn about various applications of Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) with adults, including expiratory and inspiratory muscle training (EMT/EMST and IMT/IMST). Literature and case vignettes are used to support RMT’s use for patients with swallowing and communi-cation disorders across the continuum of healthcare, from acute care to outpatient . Evidence supporting RMT in diverse patient populations will be discussed, including treatment protocols, with an emphasis on patients with oropharyngeal dysphagia. Devices used for RMT assessment and treatment are on-site for hands-on integra-tion of techniques. Strategies and support for program development are provided.
