Check Out this unique and engaging opportunity for all Ohio SLPs and AuDs! CONNECTIONS CORNER is an OSLHA initiative to connect and engage licensed professionals on important topics, trending ideas, and open discussions.

 

 

OSLHA's Connections Corner

Preparing for Successful Telehealth Visits

Telepractice is the delivery of healthcare services via an audiovisual platform which is increasing in popularity as a mode of speech-language pathology delivery following the pandemic. Telepractice is currently covered as a mode of service delivery for Medicare patients under the Federal Public Health Emergency (PHE) and is also allowable under our state practice acts as SLPs. 

Guest presenter Julie Gala, MA CCC-SLP/PAC Certified Trainer will review the different types of telepractice delivery, best practices to conduct a session and the requirements for billing and documentation.  Julie is an SLP with 14 years experience in geriatric practice with a specialty in dementia care. She is a certified trainer through Teepa Snow's Positive Approach to Care and blog contributor for their Online Dementia Journal.  She enjoys working with her alma mater as a Senior Capstone Advisor and graduate seminar speaker.

Connections Corners are live discussion and collaboration opportunities and are not CE-related events.  To promote open discussion these sessions are not typically recorded or available for viewing later.  However, we may offer CE content in our OSLHA Learning Academy on these topics and anything there would be available for CE credit.


Space will be available for the first 100 registrants who register and arrive for the session. Registration will close at 4:30 the day of the event or when the session reaches maximum capacity, whichever comes first!

This Event Occurs:

January 18, 7:00-8:00 pm

CMV Screenings Initiative

Recently, OSLHA Governmental Affairs Coalition (GAC) Representative, Maggie Kettler, AuD. presented important information about the need for statewide Cytomegalovirus (CMV) screening before the Newborn Screening Advisory Council (NSAC).

We are pleased to report her efforts convinced the council of the importance of identifying CMV early on and they will respond with a recommendation to the Director of Health that the Agency’s Infant Hearing Program implement a quality improvement initiative that includes adding targeted CMV screenings at every birthing hospital in the state.

In addition to this, stakeholders are also working on updating the widely circulated infant hearing brochure to stress the importance of screening for CMV after two failed newborn hearing screenings. Maggie has been coordinating with the children’s hospitals across Ohio on this effort.
