Reflections on the 2022 Annual Scientific Meeting

Written By: Kimberly A. Eichhorn, M.S., CCC-SLP; BC-ANCDS; ATP

If you were fortunate enough to be in NOLA this November for the Annual Scientific Meeting, you know that not much replaces connecting face-to-face.  Considering the rich content of our time together, it feels nearly impossible to harness the ideas and goals the meeting sparked.  I can thank the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and their push for age-friendly health systems for helping me organize my thoughts.  As I attempted to write this, I kept coming back to this question, what matters most?

Maintaining the highest standard of excellence for the clinical care of persons affected by neurologic communication disorders is paramount; building bridges to provide access to sound evidence-based practice and treatment materials to clinical providers across the care continuum helps do that.  Being intentionally inclusive of all people in all areas of our practice and aware of our intrinsic bias and the bias in our assessment and treatment materials will change the way we practice for the better and improve the quality of life and communicative effectiveness of our patients.  And, of course, the right hemisphere is as important as the left  no, Dr. Blake did not ask me to say that!

Looking forward to seeing all the amazing things this organization will do in 2023!
