2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK • 145 ORAL SEMINARS • FRIDAY 1461  Dysphagia is to Code Status, as Gag is to Swallow Problems: Related but Separate FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, Ballroom East Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Jinxu Xia, VCU Med Ctr; Roberta Gillespie, U of Pittsburgh Med Ctr; Paula Leslie, U of Pittsburgh; Andrea Perkins, U of Rochester Med Ctr Patients with chronic dysphagia and recurrent chest infections present challenges in acute care settings. Speech-language pathologists report concern regarding patients’ code status which may influence recommendations. We will review the medical, ethical, and legal implications of code status from an interprofessional perspective leading to the evolution of better clinical decision making and patient care. 1462  Pharyngeal Atrophy, Biomechanics & Function in Healthy Older Adults FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 210C (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Research AUTHOR(S): Sonja Molfenter, NYU; Danielle Brates, NYU; Cathy Lazarus, Mount Sinai Beth Israel It has been widely reported that between 11-38% of healthy, community-dwelling older adults will develop dysphagia. We explore the notion that sarcopenia (the natural loss of muscle bulk/function in aging) of the pharyngeal muscles significantly influences the biomechanics and function of pharyngeal swallowing in healthy aging. TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY (GI) 1463  A Person-centered Approach to mTBI Treatment: An Interprofessional Perspective FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / Westin, Burroughs Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Katharine Seagly, U of Michigan; Lisa Milman, Utah St U; Pauline Mashima, U of Hawaii; Teresa Ashman, American Psychological Assoc; Brigid Waldron-Perrine, Rehab Inst of Michigan; Diane Paul, ASHA; Raksha Mudar, U of Illinois at Urbana- Champaign This seminar, developed by the Joint Committee on Interprofessional Relations between APA and ASHA, outlines a dynamic, collaborative, person-centered approach to treating cognitive- communication symptoms of mTBI. We will discuss three techniques: motivational interviewing (MI), goal attainment scaling (GAS), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) with illustrative case examples. 1464  Techniques to Facilitate Patient Buy-In & Improve Cognitive Rehabilitation Outcomes FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 156C (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): McKay Sohlberg, U of Oregon This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Traumatic Brain Injury. Most every patient with cognitive impairments following brain injury wants to improve. However, challenges such as reduced self awareness, low expectations for therapy, and psychosocial complications can limit patient buy-in necessary for a therapeutic response. Clinician behaviors can similarly inadvertently hinder patient engagement. This presentation describes a framework & set of strategies for facilitating patients’ active participation in their cognitive rehabilitation. VOICE AND ALARYNGEAL COMMUNICATION (SLP) 1465  Research to Clinical Application: Working With Tracheostomies FR 1:00PM-2:00PM / CC, 212 (Lvl 2) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kristin King, Passy Muir, inc; Gail Sudderth, Passy-Muir, Inc. This session will present the latest research on using a bias-closed, no-leak speaking valve with patients who have a tracheostomy and mechanical ventilation. Research support for early intervention, improved clinical application, and impact on healthcare pathways will be provided. Case studies will be shown and discussed to illustrate the impacts on patient care. ACADEMIC AND CLINICAL EDUCATION (GI) 1466  Cultivating Positivity in a Competitive Environment: the Undergraduate Experience FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 105 (Lvl 1) Introductory; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Alison Baker, Miami U; Katherine Ratino, Bridgeway Academy; Jenna DeCarlo, The Ohio St U; Aine Mooney, The Ohio St U; Katie Perse, The Ohio St U; Allison Ellawadi, The Ohio St U The purpose of this talk is to provide insight into encouraging positive undergraduate experiences within the competitive environment associated with Communication Sciences and Disorders majors. We begin by highlighting qualities that foster an unhealthy environment and conclude by integrating professional and student perspectives. This presentation will provide a framework for the facilitation of successful and supportive undergraduate communities. 1467  Evolutionary Supervision: Respecting the Diversity of the People You Supervise FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 156C (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Barbara Zucker, Nova Southeastern U; Melissa Edrich, Nova Southeastern U; Suzette Espeut, City U of NY (CUNY) Lehman Coll; Bhairvi Trivedi, U of Georgia; S. Tristan Powell, Gallaudet U; Tahira Ayub, Stockton U This session is developed by, and presenters invited by, Academic and Clinical Education. This presentation will focus on multicultural issues in supervision. This course will include a review of the literature on the topic of diversity and supervision, strategies to avoid possible conflicts between the supervisee and supervisor and will also feature an interactive panel discussion with a diverse group of graduate students, recent grads and supervisees. 1468  So Many Students! How One AuD Program is Meeting the Needs of Increasing Class Sizes FR 2:30PM-3:30PM / CC, 103 (Lvl 1) Intermediate; Prof Educ AUTHOR(S): Kristine Grohne Riley, Northwestern U; Diane Novak, Northwestern U Au.D. programs are faced with increasing enrollment requirements and an ever-changing healthcare landscape. Therefore, programs must innovate to ensure that students receive appropriate training in the classroom and in the clinic. We will describe changes we have made to our academic and clinical curricula which have made successfully educating larger groups of students possible.
