Course/Activity Information

The available evidence for assessment and management of speech pathology issues in chronic cough will be summarised. Considerations for speech pathology assessment and management for chronic cough caseloads will be discussed, including exploration of the benefits of interdisciplinary approaches.

Upon successful completion of this workshop, participants will be able to

  • identify current speech pathology assessment and management practices used for the chronic cough population,
  • select relevant components for thorough assessment of voice and swallowing in chronic cough patients,
  • integrate assessment findings into management plan for patients with chronic cough,
  • plan interdisciplinary management actions for patients with chronic cough.
