Respiratory Muscle Training for the MedSLP
self-paced webinar

Take this internationally-acclaimed 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.  

What you'll learn:

  • Evidence for Respiratory Muscle Training (RMT / RMST) 
  • Applications for RMT in adults, including: dysphagia, dysarthria, voice, PVFM/VCD, ICU/acute care, trach/vent, and more 
  • How to complete an assessment, including documentation and goals
  • How to provide the therapy

What Medical SLPs say about the course:

Caroline W.

Acute Care SLP

"Brooke's course is a fantastic overview of RMT for the Medical SLP. She incorporates real patient scenarios and encourages attendees to critically think through plan of care decision-making. Brooke's course content can benefit beginner and advanced RMST providers. She arms you with articles and tangible resources that obviously took her hundreds of hours to develop.

This course is loaded with facts, data, and norms for treatment that so many of us feel we missed out on in graduate school. 

I would highly recommend Brooke's RMST class for any clinician treating dysphagia. I look forward to taking Brooke's other course offerings!"

Lisa B.

Acute Care SLP

"I was hesitant to take this course initially, thinking it would not be as relevant to my inpatient population, but I am so glad that I took this course.

Brooke does a wonderful job of explaining the utility of RMT in many different clinical contexts (including acute care) and organized the course well, citing the research behind its work in different clinical contexts and providing some very practical information on how to modify practice patterns to suit a certain clinical scenario.

I did not have much familiarity beyond a single EMT device and now feel more confident with making a decision between devices as well as understanding the role of IMT better within my patient populations. I would highly recommend this course."
