This week, CTV News published an article highlighting the crucial role of S-LPs in treating COVID-19 patients on the frontline. The article also features SAC members Avital Winer, S-LP(C), Dr. Stacey Skoretz, S-LP(C) and Sarah Jane Garland, S-LP(C).
“One of the main tools used in hospitals during the pandemic has been the ventilator, a machine that supports the breathing of those battling a severe case of COVID-19 — but after weeks or months on a ventilator, recovering patients can struggle to swallow, eat, drink or even to speak. That’s where speech-language pathologists come in, fulfilling an essential, but little-known role in the frontline response to this pandemic.”
