You can now take this internationally-acclaimed RMT course at your own pace in your own space!
Respiratory Muscle Training for the MedSLP combines lecture, critical thinking through case studies, and video examples for multimodal learning. Participants will learn about various applications of Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT) with adults, including expiratory and inspiratory muscle training (EMT/EMST and IMT/IMST).
Literature and case vignettes are used to support the use of RMT with patients with swallowing and communication disorders across the continuum of healthcare, from acute care to outpatient. A practical library of evidence supporting RMT in diverse patient populations is provided, including treatment protocols.
Participants also learn strategies for troubleshooting various challenges that may arise during evaluation and treatment. Included as a bonus are examples of documentation, including treatment goals. Finally, strategies and support for program development are also provided so that participants will feel armed with knowledge and resources to start this evidence-based program at their place of work.
Also included with your course is my highly-coveted RMT Toolkit© which contains an extensive bibliography, a quick guide to completing your RMT evaluation, homework sheets for patients, and more.
