130 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 1345  Grand Rounds: Addressing Swallowing & Communication in Persons With Dementia Across the Continuum of Care FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 102AB (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Marnie Kershner, Teaching Hosps in Washington DC (PRN SLP); Miranda Babiak, U of Northern Colorado; Susana Keller, U of Connecticut; Towino Paramby, U of Central Arkansas In the grand rounds format, participants will discuss persons with dementia in the acute care setting, aging in place, in a skilled nursing facility, and in a hospice program. These cases will frame issues related to ethics, multimorbidity, transitions of care, and team and family communication. Management of dysphagia and communication will be discussed. 1346  Head & Neck Tumor Board: A Multidisciplinary Tutorial for Speech Language Pathologists FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / Westin, Harbor Ballroom II & III Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Liza Blumenfeld, U of California, San Diego; Kristen Linnemeyer, U of California, San Diego; Barbara Messing, Greater Baltimore Med Ctr; Joseph Califano, U of California, San Diego; Julie Bykowski, U of California, San Diego Multidisciplinary tumor board provides a setting for collaborative decision making in the treatment of head and neck cancer. This course is designed to provide medical speech pathologists with an overview of each discipline and the implications of each area on speech, voice and swallowing outcomes. 1347  Implementation of Evidence Best-Practice Across the Veterans Health Administration: the Intensive Dysphagia Treatment Program FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 157ABC (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Joanne Yee, Dept of Veterans Affairs; Paula Sullivan, Dept of Veterans Affairs; Nan Musson, Dept of Veterans Affairs; Nicole Rogus-Pulia, Dept of Veterans Affairs Utilizing practice principles of evidence-based literature, clinical experience, and patient values, an intensive dysphagia treatment program was implemented to address VA non- institutional care services. This presentation will discuss the selection of evidence-based treatment protocols, outcome measures, and interdisciplinary coordination to optimize the health of patients with dysphagia. Qualitative approaches and innovative tools to improve care delivery will be shared. 1348  Management of Cough Dysfunction in the Patient With Dysphagia: Review of Complex Cases FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / Westin, Grand Ballroom A Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Michelle Troche, Teachers Coll, Columbia U; Sarah Perry, Teachers Coll, Columbia U; James Curtis, Teachers Coll, Columbia U; Jordanna Sevitz, Teachers Coll, Columbia U; Karen Hegland, U of Florida; Marta Kazandjian, New York Presbyterian Queens; Silvercrest Rehab Cough is an integral part of airway protection and necessary for pulmonary health. Disordered cough and swallowing co-exist in many patient populations. Therefore, management of cough dysfunction in patients with dysphagia is of utmost clinical importance. The goal of this seminar is to discuss the management of cough disorders in patients with dysphagia through complex clinical cases. TELEPRACTICE AND TECHNOLOGY (GI) 1349  Facilitating Positive Outcomes in Children With Hearing Loss Via Telemedicine & Parental Education FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 159 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Matthew Fitzgerald, Stanford U; Julie Cooper, Stanford U; Meg Farquhar, Stanford U; Jannine Larky, Stanford U; Melissa Tribble, Stanford U; Kimberlee Ramirez, Stanford U; Joy Kearns, Weingarten Children’s Ctr; Nikolas Blevins, Stanford U Children with hearing loss require special services from audiologists and speech- language pathologists in order to maximize their auditory and language outcomes. However, they may have difficulty accessing such services, and often parents lack knowledge about how to maximize outcomes of their child. Here we describe how telemedicine and intensive parental education can facilitate positive outcomes in children with hearing loss. 1350  Multinational Perspectives on International Telepractice FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / CC, 210B (Lvl 2) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): David Rule, U of Cincinnati; Maureen Dykinga, Dykinga Therapy Svcs This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, SIG 17: Global Issues in Communication Sciences and Related Disorders and SIG 18: Telepractice. Telepractice improves access to speech-language pathology services. However, telepractice standards are not widely implemented and remain relatively underdeveloped. It is critical to conduct a needs assessment before integrating technology into international service, be strategic in stakeholder partnerships, and plan for ongoing support after implementation. Incorporating technology globally allows sharing of expertise, improves collaborative partnerships and increases cultural competence. TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (GI) 1351  Filling the Gap: Intensive Cognitive-Communication Rehabilitation for Young Adults With Brain Injury Interested in College FR 8:00AM-10:00AM / Westin, Grand Ballroom E Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Lindsey Foo, Boston U; Natalie Gilmore, Boston U; Swathi Kiran, Boston U Young adults with acquired brain injury (ABI) have limited rehabilitation options to gain essential skills for college enrollment. The Intensive Cognitive-Communication Rehabilitation (ICCR) program, founded on principles of neural plasticity and evidence- based cognitive rehabilitation, provides a simulated college experience for young adults with ABI. ICCR consists of classroom lectures with metacognitive strategy instruction, technology skills training, and individual treatment sessions.
