Welcome to the first issue of Perspectives for 2003. First, we always like to thank and acknowledge the contributors to the newsletter. Writing an article is a time-consuming process, and all of the authors have many responsibilities to fill and tasks to accomplish. As usual, their contributions came to us on time and our authors were eager to share their thoughts, clinical experiences, and research findings.
This year our central theme is occupational voice use. Virtually all occupations involve use of the voice. In fact, many people earn a living principally by using the voice, including telemarketers, public speakers, singers, teachers, and salespeople. Even the most subtle changes to the voice can cause a negative effect on vocal quality that could ultimately result in an economic impact on the person, including loss of employment. Some of the specific demands of these occupations present an exciting challenge and special responsibility for the voice clinician and other key members of the voice care team.
