Telepractice for Voice Therapy During COVID-19: Essential Guidelines for Practitioners

Telepractice for Voice Therapy During COVID-19: Essential Guidelines for Practitioners
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented unique challenges for voice therapy practitioners. A recent research article, "Terapia Vocal No Contexto Da Pandemia Do Covid-19; Orientaes Para A Pratica Clinica," offers valuable insights for clinicians adapting to these times. The article, authored by Castillo-Allendes et al., provides 79 recommendations to ensure safe and effective voice therapy during the pandemic. Below, we summarize key takeaways and practical applications for speech-language pathologists.

Key Recommendations for Practitioners

The research emphasizes three main areas: personal protection, telepractice, and post-mechanical ventilation intervention. Here are some of the most critical points:

1. Personal Protection and Prevention

2. Telepractice for Voice Therapy

Telepractice has become an essential tool for delivering voice therapy during the pandemic. The research highlights several best practices:

3. Post-Mechanical Ventilation Interventions

Patients who have undergone mechanical ventilation may experience voice and swallowing disorders. Key recommendations include:

Encouraging Further Research

While the guidelines provide a solid foundation, the authors emphasize the need for ongoing research to refine and validate these recommendations. Practitioners are encouraged to contribute to the growing body of evidence by documenting their experiences and outcomes.

Conclusion

By adhering to these guidelines, practitioners can continue to deliver high-quality voice therapy while minimizing the risk of COVID-19 transmission. The integration of telepractice and rigorous personal protection measures are crucial for adapting to the current healthcare landscape.
