How Telehealth Transformed SLP Care: Key Insights for Practitioners

How Telehealth Transformed SLP Care: Key Insights for Practitioners

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare systems around the world had to adapt quickly, and one of the most significant shifts was the move to telehealth. The research article "Exploring patient experiences with a telehealth approach for the PRO-ACTIVE trial intervention in head and neck cancer patients" provides invaluable insights into how telehealth can be effectively implemented in Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) care. This blog will explore the key findings from this study and how practitioners can use these insights to improve their telehealth services.

Understanding Patient Experiences

The study used a qualitative approach to gather feedback from patients who participated in telehealth swallowing therapy sessions. The key takeaway is that patients generally felt satisfied, comfortable, and confident with their telehealth sessions. They appreciated the convenience and reduced exposure to COVID-19, but also identified some limitations, such as less opportunity for personalization and technical difficulties.

Areas for Improvement

Implementing the Insights

Practitioners can take several steps to enhance their telehealth services based on these findings:

Encouraging Further Research

While the study provides valuable insights, it also highlights the need for further research to optimize telehealth services. Future studies could focus on larger sample sizes and explore the long-term effectiveness of telehealth interventions in SLP care.
