The diagnosis and management of vocal dysphonia is dynamic and evolving. Care of this population is interdisciplinary through the combined efforts of mainly two professions, otolaryngology-head and neck surgery (ENT) and speech-language pathology (SLP). Because of these close collaborations, ASHA and the American Academy of Oto-laryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (AAO) have produced jointed statements entitled The Roles of Otolaryngologists and Speech-Language Pathologists in the performance and interpretation of Strobovideolaryngoscopy and The Use of Voice Therapy in the Treatment of Dysphonia to define the roles of the professions in providing care to this population.
For this issue of Perspectives, we have interviewed two leaders in voice care, Drs. Diane Bless, PhD, CCC-SLP, and Charles N. Ford, MD, who have collaborated and built a world-class voice center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We wanted to know their perspectives on the collaborative interaction in diagnosis and management of patients with dysphonia, hoping to learn from their expertise and experience.
