The Integration Of The Scholarship Of Teaching And Learning Into The Discipline Of Communication Sciences And Disorders, Jennifer Friberg, Jerry K. Hoepner, Allison M. Sauerwein, Kerry Mandulak

Teaching and Learning in Communication Sciences & Disorders

McKinney (2018) has argued that for the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) to advance within a discipline, the integration of SoTL must be closely examined and opportunities for growth in SoTL must be recognized and discussed. To that end, this paper reflects on the degree to which SoTL is integrated into communication sciences and disorders (CSD) by examining a variety of topics: perspectives and theories historically valued by our discipline, existing supports for SoTL at various levels (i.e., individual teacher-scholars, departments, institutions, and the CSD discipline as a whole), the application of SoTL findings in teaching and learning. Four …


The Utility Of Peer-To-Peer Practice For Teaching Speech-Language Pathology Students Transnasal Endoscopy, Laura L. Wolford, George W. Wolford, Charlotte A. Bolch Feb 2023

The Utility Of Peer-To-Peer Practice For Teaching Speech-Language Pathology Students Transnasal Endoscopy, Laura L. Wolford, George W. Wolford, Charlotte A. Bolch

Teaching and Learning in Communication Sciences & Disorders

Introduction: Transnasal flexible endoscopy (TNFE) is necessary for multiple assessments in speech-language pathology (SLP), but it is generally considered an advanced practice technique to be learned during clinical practice. As such, there is no standardized way that it is taught in training programs, leading to a substantial knowledge gap for new graduates. Though peer-to-peer practice has been discussed as an important step in training, it is not clear whether it confers additional benefits above and beyond simulation. This study sought to answer that question in the areas of student confidence, endoscopy speed, and motivation to pursue further TNFE experiences. Methods: …

Speech Pathology Student Perspectives On Virtual Reality To Learn A Clinical Skill, Bridget Kelly, Joanne Walters, Rachael Unicomb

Teaching and Learning in Communication Sciences & Disorders

Evidence supports the use of simulation in educating speech pathology (SP) students, however most of the research has centered on low fidelity techniques as opposed to high fidelity and immersive technologies like virtual reality (VR). Whilst there has been research on the use of VR to teach clinical skills to students in other health disciplines (e.g., dentistry, nursing), use of VR in SP has focused mainly on its use in client intervention. There is an opportunity to use VR to teach clinical skills to SP students, particularly in response to barriers to clinical placement opportunities like the COVID 19 pandemic. …


Teaching End-Of-Life Care In Speech-Language Pathology: A Tutorial, Amanda Stead, Sara Haynie, Monica Vinson Feb 2023

Teaching End-Of-Life Care In Speech-Language Pathology: A Tutorial, Amanda Stead, Sara Haynie, Monica Vinson

Teaching and Learning in Communication Sciences & Disorders

Speech-language pathologists often lack preparation for working with patients near the end of life (EoL). Few academic training programs offer dedicated or sufficient content in the area of end-of-life care (EoLC). Furthermore, traditional knowledge-focused outcomes are not the most effective pedagogical strategy in teaching EoL and palliative care to students. Instead, a focus on self-awareness and personal beliefs in relation to death and dying have been shown to have a positive effect on attitudes toward EoLC. The purposes of this paper are three-fold: First, to explore what is known about the teaching and training of EoL in the discipline of …

Teaching and Learning in Communication Sciences & Disorders

The purpose of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Self-Efficacy Questionnaire (SEQ), a self-reported questionnaire using Rasch analysis, a one-parameter logistic probability model based on scientific measurement principles. Rasch analysis was completed using the rating scale model. The various analyses allow researchers to examine the item-level psychometric properties of the SEQ, which result in measures that provide evidence for validity, reliability, and sensitivity of the instrument. Rasch analysis demonstrated that the latent trait established by the SEQ, Perceived Self-efficacy (called self-efficacy from here on), was a unidimensional construct that could be measured on a linear scale. …


Use Of A Living Document To Facilitate Critical Engagement With Social Justice For Undergraduate Audiology And Speech-Languages Pathology Students, Kristen Secora, David H Smith Feb 2023

Use Of A Living Document To Facilitate Critical Engagement With Social Justice For Undergraduate Audiology And Speech-Languages Pathology Students, Kristen Secora, David H Smith

Teaching and Learning in Communication Sciences & Disorders

Although pedagogy focused on social justice, power, and privilege have been included in teacher preparatory programs for a number of years, such topics are much newer and relatively unexplored within the context of Communication Sciences and Disorders (CSD) preprofessional programs. This reflection provides information on use of a living document assignment to encourage undergraduate CSD students to grapple with these difficult topics (e.g., privilege, oppression, social justice, allyship) early in their professional careers resulting in benefits for the students, their future clients, and the field of CSD.

Coronary Flow And Unloading In Acute Myocardial Infarction Shock, Kiyo Ishikawa Feb 2023

Coronary Flow And Unloading In Acute Myocardial Infarction Shock, Kiyo Ishikawa

Journal of Shock and Hemodynamics

In patients with cardiogenic shock that undergo successful coronary intervention, there are still factors complicating myocardial recovery. There is room for improvement in coronary flow using mechanical circulatory devices, specifically by left ventricular unloading. This idea was further explored in a research study using pigs. Results showed that subjects with acute myocardial infarction who have reduced cardiac contractility and/or high diastolic pressure would benefit from support strategies targeting left ventricular unloading.

A Grounded Theory Of Counselors’ Post-Graduation Development Of Disability Counseling Effectiveness, Michele Rivas, Nicole R. Hill

Journal of Counselor Preparation and Supervision

Many persons with disabilities engage in counseling services in a variety of settings. However, the development trajectories of counselors who seek to compensate for the lack of training and advance their post-graduation skillset to work effectively with clients with disabilities has not been explored. This grounded theory study illuminated several dimensions involved in twenty-one Licensed Professional Counselors’ post-graduation development of disability counseling effectiveness. In this study, counseling effectiveness refers to self-perceived improved skillset rather than a benchmark (i.e., competence). The core category, Evolving Commitments, was common to all participants’ trajectories when developing disability counseling effectiveness. The other categories (causal conditions, …

Transdiaphragmatic Intercostal Hernia Repair In A Patient With Previous Thoracic Surgery, Lilyan T. Starkey, Ruth P. Gerola, David A. Denning

Marshall Journal of Medicine

A transdiaphragmatic intercostal hernia (TDIH) describes the herniation of abdominal contents through diaphragm and chest wall defects. It has been documented following traumatic injuries as well as after episodes of increased thoracoabdominal pressure. However, those resulting from iatrogenic cause remain uncommon and are less often recorded. We report an iatrogenic TDIH in a patient presenting 39 days after a complicated thoracic procedure, highlighting the surgical technique used for successful hernia reduction, diaphragmatic closure, and rib re-approximation. The case reinforces the possibility of a TDIH occurring as a post-surgical complication. Surgeons should anticipate the potential development of TDIH, particularly after thoracic …

Propofol Related Infusion Syndrome: A Subtle Adversary, Brandon Harris, Elizabeth C. Taylor, John W. Pickstone, Errington C. Thompson Md Jan 2023

Propofol Related Infusion Syndrome: A Subtle Adversary, Brandon Harris, Elizabeth C. Taylor, John W. Pickstone, Errington C. Thompson Md

Marshall Journal of Medicine

Propofol Related Infusion Syndrome (PRIS) was first described in 1998. It has a strange collection of symptoms, including marked bradycardia, persistent, recalcitrant metabolic acidosis, liver enlargement, rhabdomyolysis, and lipemic blood. We present two recent patients who appeared to have had PRIS. Creatinine kinase seems to be an early detector of PRIS. If PRIS is recognized early, this complex metabolic process seems to be completely reversible.
