ASHA’s annual conference for speech-language pathologists working in health care and private practice expands from two days to two and a half days to provide even more information on clinical and business topics from nationally recognized experts. Held at the Green Valley Ranch Resort in Las Vegas, April 11–13, the 2014 SLP Health Care & Business Institute will address sweeping changes in health care and offer the latest business and reimbursement information and clinical approaches in pediatric and adult disorders.
New features include poster sessions and a motivational “Get Focused” closing session to synthesize the conference. In addition to a business management and reimbursement track—complete with the latest on Medicare coding, Medicaid and HIPAA—a new business and technology strategies track will bring private practitioners up to speed on technology for mobile apps, public relations, marketing and Web presence.
Another new feature is the “Plus Package” conference registration option that includes an exclusive reception with keynote speaker and body-language expert, Linda Tally, and access to the recordings—and CEU opportunities—of the 40-plus sessions after the conference.
The conference will offer three clinical tracks: adult neurogenic disorders, pediatric issues and issues in swallowing. The pediatric track will have a full day of programming by an interdisciplinary pediatric feeding team, led by Joan Arvedson of the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin with her colleagues from pediatric gastroenterology and psychology. The track also includes ASHA 2013 President Patty Prelock presenting on autism, and Edythe Strand of the Mayo Clinic presenting on childhood apraxia of speech.
The swallowing track will include Jim Coyle from the University of Pittsburgh discussing the relationship between respiration and dysphagia and challenging participants to think about their approaches to diagnosis and intervention. Otolaryngologist and SLP Ashli O’Rourke will discuss esophageal screening and Kate Hutcheson will provide information on dysphagia related to head and neck cancer.
The neurogenic track includes focused topics in aphasia, dementia, traumatic brain injury and apraxia by national experts Audrey Holland, Lyn Turkstra, Michelle Bourgeois, Edythe Strand and Michael Biel.
The registration deadline is April 4. For more information about the program, speakers and registration, visit www.asha.org/events/hcbi.
