Description

Speech pathologists are becoming increasingly involved in the use of endoscopes in clinical practice, yet while manuals and training programs are comprehensive, the practicalities and pragmatics of working in busy clinical scenarios are not always fully addressed. Sue Jones provides the perfect introduction to videoendoscopy in voice clinics: she first covers the set-up of a voice clinic including personnel and procedures, as well as the practicalities of introducing clients to what can be a daunting prospect. Thereafter, she describes the technology and instrumentation, offering expert guidance on its correct use in clinic as a diagnostic and assessment tool, and explaining in detail how to interpret results for therapy planning. Written clearly and concisely, and supported with some excellent case examples, this book will help students and voice therapists understand the benefits - and avoid the potential pitfalls - of endoscopic examination, and apply that knowledge in clinic.
