OSLHA's Connections Corner
Join our guest host, Mechelle Motsinger, as we discuss ethical considerations when advising caregivers with helping their loved one manage or recover from dysphagia caused by serious medical illness.
Mechelle is a CCC-SLP who earned her Bachelor’s degree in Speech and Hearing Science from The Ohio State University and her Master’s degree in Speech-Language Pathology from Ohio University. She has worked as an acute care speech-pathologist for 3 years and currently works full-time at Riverside Methodist Hospital. She currently serves as the leader of the speech-language pathology patient education committee at Riverside, writing and editing patient educational handouts for use in the inpatient setting. She is also a speech-language pathology representative for the system oncology team and a member of the blood and marrow transplant team. Mechelle was a recipient of the 2021 ASHA Distinguished Early Career Professional Certificate and she will be presenting an in-person seminar at the 2022 ASHA Convention. She serves as a clinical instructor for graduate clinicians and is a guest lecturer for the speech-language pathology program at the Ohio State University. Mechelle acts as a dysphagia consultant to the palliative care and hospice care service at Riverside Methodist Hospital and Kobacker House.
This session will equip speech-language pathologists to navigate complex clinical situations when conventional recommendations for dysphagia management are not preferred by a patient or inadvertently cause harm to a patient. We will discuss alternative interventions, including palliative dysphagia management and learn how to openly and effectively discuss goals of care with patients and caregivers and document those discussions.
We hope you will join us at this hour-long, virtual gathering to discuss, share, and collaborate on topics of interest in our field. You can network with friends and professionals across the state through our live, interactive, informative platform!
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!
