The RCSLT have developed a guide to support clinical staff in identifying speech and language therapy needs post COVID-19.
The one-page document has been created to make it easier for clinical staff to work with their patients to identify any communications or swallowing needs they may have following COVID-19.
It offers signposting to speech and language therapy services and offers preliminary advice to support patients who may be experiencing issues with voice quality, throat comfort, swallowing, cognitive communication and/or laryngeal/airway sensitivity.
The guide consists of questions to ask patients within your consultations to promote earlier identification and access to treatment and improve patient outcomes.
