Webinar Description
The lack of a universal system to describe or specify speech pathology treatment creates a barrier to providing cost-effective, patient-centered care that optimizes outcomes. This webinar will focus on the Rehabilitation Treatment Specification System (RTSS), a theory-based framework that addresses the need for a common system to specify rehabilitation interventions. Speech language pathologists will consider how to apply RTSS to their practice to help them articulate their clinical reasoning processes in ways that benefit treatment process, communicate with team members, and translate research findings to clinical care.

Meet the Presenter
Dr. Lyn Turkstra is a Professor in the School of Rehabilitation Science at McMaster University, head of the graduate program in Speech-Language Pathology, and a faculty member in the McMaster Neuroscience Graduate Program. Her research focuses on understanding social communication challenges in adolescents and adults with acquired brain injury, and developing intervention strategies that will optimize long-term social outcomes. Dr. Turkstra was member of the Rehabilitation Treatment Specification System project funded by the U.S. Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute, and is co-author of the Manual for Treatment Specification and the core publications outlining the RTSS application to clinic, research, and development of clinical reasoning.

"This course has given me lots of tools to communicate with my clients with aphasia. It has given me new ideas and visions and I’m looking forward to share the SCATM method with my colleagues and other professionals in my rehabilitation centre. Thank you for the course! "
