Welcome to the mid-year issue of Perspectives. We had a terrific response to the March issue focusing on reimbursement and documentation for voice assessment and treatment, and I am sure that you will find this issue just as valuable. Information on assessment and management of voice for patients with tracheostomy or ventilator support can be hard to come by, and we have gathered many experts in one place for you in this issue. As usual, Dee Nikjeh, has unearthed relevant coding and reimbursement information for this topic as well. Many thanks to all of our authors.
It is with a heavy heart that I share the passing of one of the great voice scientists, Janina Casper, PhD. Many of us cut our teeth, so to speak, in the area of voice when we first cracked open the Colton and Casper voice textbook in graduate school. I had the privilege to share dinner with her following her receipt of the Frank R. Kleffner Lifetime Clinical Career Award at ASHA 2006. It is no surprise that she encouraged all of her dinner companions that evening to continue in the pursuit of new knowledge for voice care: She was always the consummate clinician and mentor. She will be missed. Any affiliates interested in contributing to the The Janina K. Casper, PhD, Fund for voice research may contact the Syracuse Voice Center, Department of Otolaryngology and Communication Sciences, Upstate Medical University, 750 East Adams St., Syracuse, NY 13210 (phone: 315-464-7339).
