Boost your competence and confidence as a Medical SLP

“The Tight-Knit Community of Medical SLP Experts, Mentors, and Clinicians” Reveals: Blind-Peer Reviewed Resources, Webinars for ASHA CEUs, and Mentorship That Make You Feel Supported as a Medical SLP

Now, you can deal with any kind of Medical SLP-related clinical situation with confidence and knowledge because the resources, the community support from our mentors, and the webinars inside The Medical SLP Collective, make it easier for you to feel fulfilled in your career, help your patients improve, and demonstrate your competence to your directors and colleagues.

Do you feel unfulfilled in your career as a medical SLP, and perhaps a bit confused on how to move forward?

Do you feel completely overwhelmed, overworked, overstressed, yet completely misunderstood and underappreciated in your facility?

Do you feel like you’re riding the therapy hamster wheel unsure if you are even providing good care for your patients?

When you started practicing medical SLP, after grad school, did you get overwhelmed with how much medical SLP information was missing from your graduate education?

Are you feeling a bit angry that you received the same training as clinicians who work with kindergarteners, and now you feel like you have huge gaps in what you need to know to treat life-or-death medical cases? (I'm NOT knocking my pediatric clinicians, we just really, truly work in 2 completely separate worlds!)

Are you feeling even more confused and more unsupported since COVID-19 began? 

If you’ve been working in the field for a while, do you feel frustrated that there’s no *ONE* single centralized source to stay up-to-date on all the latest research and treatments that are coming out every year?

Are you even sure you’re providing the right and best, most up-to-date treatment techniques to your patients?

Are you sick of paying up to $500 for courses that teach you about just one of the many, many conditions you need to stay up-to-date on?

Dear Medical SLPs, 

You see, I started out my career working in schools. I had zero clinical hours and zero externships in the medical field, yet I kept being pulled in that direction.

I was fortunate enough to have awesome CF supervisors who pushed me to shadow some SLPs in skilled nursing, but once my C.F. was over and I accepted a job in skilled nursing…

I was drowning.

Like not even up-a-creek-without-a-paddle drowning…

Like trying to climb-up-Niagara-Falls drowning.

I embarked on the long and arduous journey of self study and educating myself on countless research articles, and wasted so many hours weeding through CEU courses and papers that weren’t really even relevant to my particular situation.

My wonderfully supportive boss sent me to so many CEU courses, some of which were great, and some of which were a total waste of time. Some I just couldn’t use in my facility, or they were so focused on a specific population. And honestly? Some were just way over my head.

Not only was it a huge waste of time and money for me… but then I think of my patients.

They came to me expecting me to use the highest quality evidence available to help them achieve their goals of regaining their speech, language, or swallowing abilities.

Not only could it have been a gigantic waste of time for them to come get speech therapy from someone who only had sub-par training in some areas, but what about the cost?

I remember the days of filling out the appeals of denied therapy and wondering what the heck I was doing so wrong that my patients weren’t making progress like they should, their services were denied reimbursement, and I felt like the biggest failure ever and on the brink of total and complete burnout. 

And then I found like minded colleagues on social media, which turned out to be a blessing and a curse all at the same time.

At first I was on cloud nine that so many people were seeking the answers that I was looking for as well, but then it almost became a game of Scrabble.

I found myself more conflicted than ever, because everyone had the best of intentions, but who can tell who actually knows what they’re talking about behind a social media handle?

We all try so hard to do the best for our patients, but there’s no peer review process online, no way to verify the evidence unless the poster provides several research articles, in which case we’re back to square 1 of spending hundreds of hours pouring through research papers that may or may not even be applicable to me or my patients after spending hundred of dollars just to access the articles, which makes this game not so fun anymore.

And who suffers most? Our patients.

One day I woke up with 17 unread papers I had collected, sitting on my desk. My gut sense was that 1 or 2 would be really valuable, applicable and relevant to me. 10 would be so-so – and only useful if I did additional research (which would of course yield additional papers to read, and the desk doom grows!!). And for 5, once I spent the time reading them, I would see that they had been a total waste of time. (Of course, I only see that after those hours had irretrievably been wasted down the toilet bowl of time.)

And this price tag for finding the few true gems? $500 in fees for downloading individual articles. Plus hours and hours of wading.

That morning, two simple words came into my head:

“No thanks.”

I just felt completely done with that common method of advancing my medical SLP knowledge.

I looked online for a centralized resource that would collect, curate, and deliver to me only the most relevant information that an in-the-field clinician such as myself would need, in an easily-digestible format.

Do you think I found anything even close to that? Heck no, not even close.

So, I did what any enterprising girl like myself would do…

I decided to create the very resource I needed!

Lo and behold!

The Medical SLP Collective: the most supportive community in all of medical SLP world – with peer-reviewed resources and webinars – for the clinicians by the clinicians.

As much as I LOVE providing this service for you, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t need it and want it just as much as you do. It just makes my life so much easier.

This community is where experts of aphasia, dysphagia, cognitive communication, voice disorders and pediatrics, esteemed clinicians and thought leaders, help their fellow medical SLPs. 

How? I’ll tell you in a minute.

Now you must be skeptical of these claims because this is not the first time you’re reading such claims.

Look, I can be wrong, but all these SLPs who are just like you, cannot be wrong.

Still Not Convinced?

Libbie Gary has been a practicing clinician for over 29 years and uses the MedSLP Collective to stay up to date for her patients.

Rebekah Ebertowski is a traveling SLP on dysphagia island.

Kellie Green has successfully transitioned from a pediatric private practice to working in the adult medical sector with the help of the MedSLP Collective.

Katelin Smierciak is a Clinical Fellow who has used many inservices and handouts to advocate for her patients and gain respect amongst her colleagues.

In a minute, I’m going to show you why this community has been THIS effective, but before I do that, let us see who is the ideal candidate c:

  • Are you a medical SLP who is simply baffled by the challenges in this field? 
  • Are you an SLP who needs solid academic help and guidance – you are done asking this or that colleague – and now you want nothing less than blind peer-reviewed resources and materials that can help you treat all kinds of challenging clinical cases?
  • Are you sick and tired of how your supervisors and directors underestimate your skills, your knowledge and your potential?

I’m grateful to have found such an incredibly supportive group of SLPs in the Collective. As a member, I’ve learned from so many excellent clinicians, and I feel empowered to go above and beyond for my patients. I can’t help but think of the impact this group is making on our patients by enabling and supporting us SLPs to provide high quality, evidence-based treatment. I love contributing to the group, and also learning!

Alexandra Basilakos, Ph.D. CCC-SLP

When you ask a clinical question to an SLP Facebook group, you might get a dozen answers, but you don't know which ones are right. Or you might not get an answer at all! With the Medical SLP Collective, every question gets an answer from people you know are experts in that area, so you can trust that you're getting quality information that will help your clients. As a mentor on the site, I learn so much from the other mentors, along with getting to share my expertise with the members.

Megan Sutton, M.S., CCC-SLP

I’ve been finding new motivation to acquire new, evidence-based material for work. The “Collective” of people who simply want to know more and do better has been good for me as a mentor because I am constantly holding other and myself to a high standard. My patients are able to reach their goals more efficiently and with less time spent in the clinic – a win-win because I can help more people and am very efficient with use of their time. Need 3x/week for 4 weeks? Check! Need 5x/week for 3 weeks? Check! Therapy won’t make a difference? Referral to appropriate source sent!  While I am a mentor, I’ve had the chance to ask questions of the group and work with other mentors on situations with my patients. I also learn a lot from reading the replies to other members’ posts.

“Who Are You, Theresa, and Why Should I Listen to You?!”

I’m Theresa Richard M.A., CCC-SLP, BCS-S.

I’m a Board Certified Specialist in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders.

I own Mobile Dysphagia Diagnostics and have provided mobile FEES studies to thousands of patients in over 100 skilled nursing facilities across 4 states.

I have helped over 80 medical SLPs start and grow a thriving mobile FEES company, and I've individually supported over 60 SLPs accomplish their goals in their career advancement.

One of my blog posts, Don’t Be a Sip, Sip, Done SLP,” was viewed over 30,000 times in the first 24 hours–which, I must admit, is a surprisingly large number for our small little field.

I created a podcast called “Swallow Your Pride” that debuted at #11 on the Science and Medicine chart of iTunes. It just crossed the 1.5 Million downloads mark, and is going strong!

My community, the Medical SLP collective, has a website where you’d find a WEALTH of blind peer-reviewed resources, materials and webinars registered for ASHA CEUs.

 And then there’s a Facebook group too where you can connect with other clinicians and university professors who can mentor you through your toughest clinical cases.

 Our goal is to arm you with evidence-backed and research-based, tested and proven techniques that can ACTUALLY help people with speech, language, and swallowing disorders.

I run this membership site not as an editor of a peer-reviewed journal, but as a normal girl in the trenches seeing patients every day, and wanting to provide for them the highest quality assessments and treatments that are supported by the evidence.

You see, it’s totally NOT your fault that you didn’t have a solid medical foundation in grad school, or experienced mentors to help launch your career, you just tried to do the best you could in the situation you were given, but now realize that it might be holding you back from really helping your patients.

And I’ve been EXACTLY where you are right now. 

 As I explained in the beginning, I was also trying hard to survive with little to no guidance, taking every continuing education course possible, and with my physician colleagues misunderstanding my role.

 Traditional SLP advice (FREE and hasty advice, to be precise) wasn’t working for me at all. 

 I knew I wasn’t alone. I kept reading story after story of my colleagues feeling the exact same way.

 And then, out of the blue, an idea popped into my mind. As I have said already, I simply asked myself:

 “Hey Theresa, there must be many other medical SLPs just like – trying to make a living in this profession and actually help patients.

 And they must be just as baffled, as flabbergasted, as puzzled and as frustrated as you are.

 Why not create the solution that you are so desperately looking for?”

 And that made me search for the answers to some very maddening questions.

  • Is this possible to create a community where senior and experienced clinicians help the newer clinicians?
  • If yes, what kind of help would newer clinicians require the most?
  • Are we also going to teach the same methodologies that aren’t recommended anymore? If not, how are we going to make sure that new clinicians only receive evidence-based information?
  • How would we make sure that the resources and materials are up-to-date? There’s an element of bias in peer-review, how would we work around that bias?
  • And so many other questions.

The real problem wasn’t the lack of resources, but that such resources could not be trusted blindly.

Blindly… was the word that stuck in my mind.

That was the same time when I was in touch with some university professors and I discussed the idea with them – the idea to blind peer-review our resources.

I knew this would be tough to carry out logistically, but I appreciated the idea. There was no other foolproof way to make sure that all resources on my website were up to date and evidence-backed.

Since a major problem of many existing MedSLP resources was that they were outdated – mostly, we had to make sure that our community didn’t have the same problem.

To counter this problem, I set out on a voyage to create and source resources that were blind peer-reviewed by our editing team..

For example, one of the resources is titled “Patient Benefits and Risks of Thickened Liquids”. This resource walks the clinician through the risk benefit discussion that would be had with a patient and their family when deciding if this is an appropriate compensatory strategy for their dysphagia.

 And this is just one example of one evidence-based resource.

Does this make sense? Can you see the connection between your problems and the solution that I provide in the Medical SLP Collective?

You’ve got questions? “Patient Benefits and Risks of Thickened Liquids” is not the only resource there. There are hundreds of other resources to help answer your tough clinicial questions. 

See what our current members are saying!

This is why I created the Medical SLP Collective

I created this membership site because I’m passionate about giving medical SLPs the real-life training they need, beyond graduate school, which often doesn’t provide all the resources you’ll need to even do the basic parts of your job.

I saw a huge and unacceptable gap in the education of medical SLPs, and I decided to fill that gap. This site is that effort–and there’s truly nothing else out there like it.

I’m on a mission to change the way medical SLPs are educated and prepared to thrive in their jobs. I hope you’ll join me and so many other forward-thinking clinicians as we advance this mission together.

No other course or program will give you the diverse, high quality, done-for-you materials that are blind peer reviewed by university professors.

The MedSLP Collective provides the materials, resources, and webinars registered for ASHA CEUs, that you vote on combined with access to experts in all areas to answer your toughest clinical cases with compassion and evidence.

The MedSLP Collective helps stressed out, overwhelmed, and misunderstood medical SLPs become the respected expert in their facility and work towards career fulfillment.

Now, you might think that you’ve been in this field long enough and you have enough experience or maybe you had a stellar medical SLP program that you don’t need any done-for-you resources.

But the research is constantly evolving, and it will take you a heck of a lot longer to dig through the research to find the answers and you still might not find the best evidence out there for that specific patient.

Believe me, I’m a 6-time ASHA ACE Award winner. I didn’t think I would need any more continuing education courses either.

But the reality is, there are so many aspects of our field that we should know about and keep up to date with: dysphagia, aphasia, voice disorders, motor speech disorders, cognitive communication, pediatrics, traumatic brain injury, NICU, to name a few.

Let’s say you have a $500 budget per year for CEUs. If you have a more advanced practice, it’s so easy to spend that money on a highly specialized course, such as a new technique that can help with swallowing for a very specific patient population. Often this is a population you’ll only encounter sporadically in your practice.

In contrast, I believe it’s best to invest your continuing education budget in a program that will keep you up-to-date on the latest peer-reviewed research on nearly every condition you might encounter in your practice.

As you know, the field is advancing and evolving so rapidly. Only 5 years ago, people were listening to the swallow with a stethoscope.

Imagine having access to an ever growing “library” of SLP insight, practical techniques and modern, peer-reviewed literature!

Private Forum and Facebook Group

If a library full of SLP resources is not enough, how about a private forum and Facebook group where you can discuss your tough clinical cases with mentors and professors?

  • Hop into our exclusive Facebook group or private forum (that has its own app!!) to ask your questions in there.
  • I directly answer member questions in the group as do 30 other mentors for The MedSLP Collective.
  • You’ll also have access to paid moderators and university professors to ensure you receive guidance supported by the evidence.

Many of our members in the Collective say that the private forum in the Facebook Group is worth the price of enrollment alone, as you get real-life, front-line, in-the-trenches support from your fellow clinicians, with researchers to back it up, and a team of mentors to answer your every question.

(Yes we do have some fantastic peds mentors as well, including 2 PhDs!)

How would you feel having access to all the knowledge, experience, and insight of 30+ MedSLP mentors at your fingertips?

No grad school, no SLP course can replace this freedom, this ease and this confidence!

Accountability Groups

Want some accountability peers who’d help you achieve your goals and who’d “provoke” you to keep pushing your limits?

Have you wanted to have a group of like-minded highly motivated Medical SLPs that you could communicate with on a regular basis and in a more intimate way?

  • We have created accountability groups for our members and some are meeting monthly, bi-weekly, and even weekly.
  • We've gotten great feedback from these groups that they were just what you need.

Still regret that you never got the “push” that you always needed and the support that you always longed for? 

Well, come on in and you’d never regret anything anymore!

Exclusive Access to our Live Event

If you’ve come this far and you’ve been paying attention, it goes without saying that the Medical SLP Collective is jam packed with value that you cannot afford to ignore.

Our members attend our live event because nowhere else can they get a chance to enjoy a face to face conversation with fellow MedSLPs and benefit from experienced clinicians discussing the critical thinking behind several tough clinical cases

So what is the Collective Live Event? So happy you asked!

I created the Collective Live Event as a unique learning opportunity.

Imagine having the chance to discuss your most challenging clinical cases with some of the top experts in our field – all while sipping wine and hanging out with your friends! That’s exactly how the Live Event is structured.

Members have the opportunity to participate in roundtable discussions with mentors from the Collective, hear live speakers, obtain ASHA CEUs, all while in a laid back environment. (Seriously, we drank wine and ate the best food!)

This event is only for Collective members and we want YOU there.

Why Should You Trust Our Peer-Review Process

The term peer review refers to a process involving single-blind or double-blind critical inspection and appraisal of many types of work, including research articles, systematic review, literature review, meta-analyses, tutorials, position papers, etc. The peer review process is NOT limited to research articles alone. Peer review is an integral aspect of scholarly development outside of refereed journals.

k

WHAT IS A RESOURCE?

A resource is meant to be used by clinicians. Resources range from topic overviews to deeper exploration, and take several useful forms, from tutorials to prepared in-services ready to use in clinical practice. Resources are not original research and are not designed for continuing education credit.

EDITORIAL REVIEW

An Editorial Review includes careful examination and commentary on the mechanics (spelling, grammar, APA formatting, etc.) of each submission. Editors may also discuss whether the material meets the needs and interests of our membership.

w

PEER REVIEW

A Peer Reviewer is familiar with research and clinical literature in the resource topic area. Our Peer Reviewers are typically PhD, EdD, or other research educated faculty, as well as some with clinical doctorates, master’s degrees, and backgrounds in development of clinical materials.

PROCESS

Authors who wish to submit a resource must reach out to the Content Manager (CM) to discuss an area of interest. The CM may also reach out to potential authors if specific requests for a resource are made. The CM provides the prospective author with “Contribution Guidelines,” that  contain a general set of criteria including originality, attribution, organization of key points/objectives, etc.

PROCESS CONTINUED

Once the draft is received, Reviewer 1 (R1) completes first review following a set of guidelines that includes emphasis on best practice, accurate integration of relevant literature, and relevancy of cited materials. After this first review, R1 discusses resource with ME recommending minor or major revisions from author with a subsequent re-review (R2) after changes are made within 2-4 weeks.

PUBLICATION

Following R2, most resources only require editorial clean-up and are ready for publication. A reference recommendation, author name/collective name if no author listed, and date are applied, and the resource will be distributed to the collective, usually with a short video explanation from the author, from the CR, or from Theresa Richard.

 

I’ve gone to great lengths to make sure that each and every resource that is published by The Medical SLP Collective is peer-reviewed and reliable!

Forget Clinical Fellowship…

This is about CAREER FULFILLMENT

Because of my podcast, I talk to hundreds of different medical SLP providers each year. And they all tell me the same thing:

Clinical Fellowship is actually a Clinical FARCE.

The way it’s sold to you, clinical fellowship is the year you’re supposed to get everything you need to develop a successful career.

In reality, rehab directors view clinical fellows as a cheap labor pool they can exploit and run to the ground with overwork and no oversight for a year, before moving on to the next young crop of easily-exploitable SLP labor.

Because there is such a huge gap in our education, unfortunately most medical SLPs come out of CF no closer to their career goals than when they entered.

That’s why I decided to do something about it.

Instead of Clinical Fellowship, were going to turn the letters CF into something much more valuable for you:

Career Fulfillment

Which is why I created the MedSLP Collective.

I created this membership site because I’m passionate about giving medical SLPs the real-life training they need, beyond graduate school, which often doesn’t provide all the resources you’ll need to even do the basic parts of your job.

I saw a huge and unacceptable gap in the education of medical SLPs, and I decided to fill that gap. This site is that effort–and there’s truly nothing else out there like it.

I’m on a mission to change the way medical SLPs are educated and prepared to thrive in their jobs. I hope you’ll join me and so many other forward-thinking clinicians as we advance this mission together.

No other course or program will give you the diverse, high quality, done-for-you materials that are blind peer reviewed by university professors.

The MedSLP Collective provides the materials, resources, and webinars registered for ASHA CEUs, that you vote on combined with access to experts in all areas to answer your toughest clinical cases with compassion and evidence.

The MedSLP Collective helps stressed out, overwhelmed, and misunderstood medical SLPs become the respected expert in their facility and work towards career fulfillment.

Now, you might think that you’ve been in this field long enough and you have enough experience or maybe you had a stellar medical SLP program that you don’t need any done-for-you resources.

But the research is constantly evolving, and it will take you a heck of a lot longer to dig through the research to find the answers and you still might not find the best evidence out there for that specific patient.

Believe me, I’m a 6-time ASHA ACE Award winner. I didn’t think I would need any more CEUs either.

But the reality is, there are so many aspects of our field that we should know about and keep up to date with: dysphagia, aphasia, voice disorders, motor speech disorders, cognitive communication, pediatrics, traumatic brain injury, NICU, to name a few.

Let’s say you have a $500 budget per year for CEUs. If you have a more advanced practice, it’s so easy to spend that money on a highly specialized course, such as a new technique that can help with swallowing for a very specific patient population. Often this is a population you’ll only encounter sporadically in your practice.

In contrast, I believe it’s best to invest your CEU budget in a program that will keep you up-to-date on the latest peer-reviewed research on nearly every condition you might encounter in your practice.

As you know, the field is advancing and evolving so rapidly. Only 5 years ago, people were listening to the swallow with a stethoscope.  

Imagine that! A practice that had been used for years, now feels like a “stone age” practice, since the development of videofluoroscopy and endoscopic swallowing evaluations. (Except sadly some are still using this “stone age” practice today!)

Each year, so many new discoveries and treatments are coming out–it’s almost insane to not keep abreast of those. Yet there are few centralized resources in our field to do so.

Until now.

Do you want to wait until you have a patient in front of you expecting that you have the knowledge in that area to help them?

Or do you want to know how to provide them the best, evidence-based, most cutting-edge treatment, because you’ve received detailed information about that treatment automatically in this site each week?

Introducing …
The CF (Career Fulfillment) Cycle

I want you to listen up here, because this is going to be some of the most important content you ever receive, mapping out your career success.

There’s a cycle you never learned about in your traditional CF or other education, but that is essential to your career fulfillment.

It goes like this:

You have to advocate/educate your director or other decision-makers at your workplace to make them understand what you do and the value you bring to their patients and organization.

If you do step 1 well (which we teach you to do in the Collective–including avoiding the numerous pitfalls)…  You will get access to a new tool – such as an expiratory muscle strength trainer, which will allow your patients with airway protection.

Now you’ve upped your game and your patients are reaching their goals faster and better. Success!

However, now you face an additional challenge – convincing your director that your patient has indeed improved, and that your new tools and your work were responsible for this. Yes, it’s unfortunate that in our field we always have to prove ourselves and our work to our bosses at each step–but that won’t be a problem when you’re working the CF Cycle because we’ve got you covered.

In the Medical SLP Collective, we give you ALL the latest evidence-based resources to make the best possible case to your administrators and directors why you should be given a bigger budget to get better equipment. You can try to make this case on your own, without all the hand-curated research backing you up- or you can leave all that work to us and you just show them the evidence.

Now you’ve reached a new level of respect, so that when you go to advocate for an even more expensive piece of equipment, they see the results you deliver and the research you’ve done, and are willing to invest even more in your success and your patients’ success.

Uplevel Your ASK – now it’s time to submit a proposal for a more substantial piece of equipment like FEES equipment, which will allow you to expand your reach and range of services even further.

“The done-for-you services alone justify the price tag.”

I’m a brand new CF SLP. I got a job at an awesome outpatient clinic seeing both peds and adults which was TERRIFYING and exciting (mostly terrifying) but I learned about this site from my former internship supervisor and for that. With so many disorders and age groups, it was hard to wrap my head around what to dig into first regarding research. I especially needed help with my adult population because my grad school wasn’t heavily medically based. The Med SLP Collective made my life SO MUCH EASIER with all of the case study posts on FB, peer reviewed handouts on the page, and all of the amazing CEUs available! The MedSLP Collective has given me the confidence I need to fight for my patients as a new SLP and do things that weren’t done before, to get out of my comfort zone. One of the things I’ve started at my clinic is a weekly group therapy session for some of my adults with aphasia. I reached out on the MedSLP Collective page, got some great feedback and resources, and it’s worked out great!!! Several of my patients were so so discouraged and thought they were alone. The stress of that was hindering them from making as much progress as they could’ve been making. Participating in group therapy has made such a positive impact on them. They’ve been more motivated and determined to succeed, and they know there are others going through the same thing. It’s been a game changer for each of them, and one of my patients actually just started work again last week. The mentors have been a tremendous help in so many ways. Other than the group therapy thing, I’m constantly reading posts that others put on FB along with the mentors comments. Since I have such a diverse caseload I almost always find ways to apply what I learn to my own patients. I have a lot of patients with voice disorders and didn’t have much experience in this area, so the mentors have been a huge help to me as I’ve navigated through learning all of the best ways of assessment and treatment with this population!

Taylor West

I definitely lacked confidence prior to joining the Collective. I was just out of my CFY with some experience in a SNF but wasn't sure if I was correct in everything I was doing. Now, with all the resources, demonstration videos, and webinars the Collective has shared with me I am much more confident. The Collective has helped me with my thirst for knowledge. I love getting new materials and information on assessment or therapy ideas. While we do contribute in the Collective to say what we'd like to learn, we don't always know what's coming out next! For me, that enhances my curiosity and has expanded my knowledge base. The Collective has helped me improve my therapy across all types of patients. For instance, I am so interested in dysphagia that sometimes it can pull my focus. The Collective refocuses me and helps me to learn about all areas since it comes out with new information each week that is not just about dysphagia. Then all of my patients, particularly those who are not dysphagia patients, benefit from my knowledge! The mentors can help guide you through a specific patient which is an amazing thing. You can get a same day answer and feel confident in your approach.

Amy Locke

Before the MedSLP Collective I felt I wasn’t up to date on EBP and doing the same thing in my treatments. I am the only SLP in my building so it was hard to find professionals to bounce ideas off of as well. The MedSLP Collective has improved my overall knowledge and treatment methods. I feel more confident in myself as a SLP! The Collective has allowed access to information and support from others. Reading everyone’s questions and wins has motivated me to be the best SLP I can be every day. The mentors are amazing at referencing different resources and giving realistic advice on a variety of topics.

Jen Prato

Before joining the Collective, I felt frustrated that our field did not seem to have a common set of practice standards. I felt that myself and others were sort of wading through the days and not having a consensus about what we should be doing, like PT and OT seemed to enjoy. I feel like the Collective has given me unison with other SLP's. It has changed and shaped my career, making me not only more confident in my abilities, but giving me solidarity with my SLP colleagues. The greatest gain is for my patients in gaining the EBP they deserve! I have changed out of a work environment that did not deserve me and the Collective gave me the courage to make that change. This was huge for me. In my new position, I am working on establishing a FEES program with policies and procedures- a huge undertaking. I am also working on building a strong speech program in a rural hospital. Our hospital is in a struggle against a larger hospital and the battle is to see which one will survive this turbulent healthcare environment. This has helped my patients gain access to higher quality care than has traditionally only been available to them at least 2 hours away.

Sandra Hogsed

Before the MedSLP Collective I had 0 confidence in what I was doing. I was evaluating patients and treating them based on how I was taught to treat them by my supervisor. I didn’t know the “why” for what I was having my patients do during therapy, and I sure as heck didn’t know if what I was doing was EBP. Fast forward to about 7 months of being in the Collective and the way I evaluate and treat patients has drastically changed. There have been so many big things that I have been able to accomplish with the MedSLP Collective. It has helped to successfully implement a FFWP in our acute inpatient rehab program, start the process for my hospital (and all other hospitals in our health system) to transition to IDDSI, and to convince my manager to get our SLPs trained in MBSImp! However, the biggest thing that I am most proud of is getting my coworkers on board with is to not modify patient diets, specifically liquids, without an instrumental assessment. Previously, myself and my coworkers were the SLPs that would recommend thickened liquids for a a patient without an instrumental assessment because the s/s of aspiration were “overt.” Without the education of the Collective, I would still be doing that. I now know why that was wrong and that I need to do better and be better for our patients. I am now able to help patients to achieve their goals in the most effective ways possible. I take some time each day to read Facebook posts from others so that I can learn from their experiences and see what the mentors recommend. If I have a question come up regarding one of my patients, I’m able to quickly search the group and have so far been able to find and answer from someone else’s post who had the same question! The Facebook group has been a wonderful tool for me to get answers quickly that I know are well thought out and evidence based.

Megan Leonard

Prior to the MedSLP Collective, I found myself spending an inordinate amount of time trying to find the latest research related to the challenge-of-the-day, only to find myself doubting my knowledge. I wasn't sure if the research I found was appropriate, most up to date, or if there were other studies that negated what I had found. I definitely lacked confidence! The MedSLP Collective has boosted my confidence! It has also motivated me to not only be a better clinician, but encourage my colleagues to step up their game, as well! I recruited one colleague to join MedSLP Collective (she even created an incredible binder with all of the handouts/in-services) and another on the waiting list. Because my confidence is higher, I present myself to my patient in a way that increases their trust in me. I also felt more confident to professionally challenge physicians when they presented me with road blocks in my plan of care. The mentors quick responses and the helpful evidence-based resources they provide help me provide best practice more efficiently! I wasn't taking hours to google search articles and doubting myself. Ultimately, more patients received evidence based practice with improved confidence in a shorter period of time.

Lauren Hermann

Before the MedSLP Collective I was really questioning my career choice. I felt like I had no idea about what I had gotten myself into. This group has helped me be more confident in my skills as a SLP. It’s helped me provide much needed resources to my patients and it’s helped me become a better SLP over all. It’s helped make [my patient's] goals more functional and centered around what they want. The [mentors] helped put me in contact with other SLPs that are in my area to answer my questions and assist me

Jess Collins

[Before the MedSLP Collective] I felt confident in certain areas but not with complex unfamiliar etiologies. The MedSLP Collective has provided me with in-depth knowledge in a variety of areas and it makes looking for the most up to date research so easy! I am now more confident with my selection of interventions and have a broad knowledge base. The mentors in the Facebook group have been like big sisters in the SLP sorority life.

Emily Hornback

Before the Collective, I struggled with EBP and keeping up with the research. I took free CEU courses that were lack luster and did not help me with knowing how to treat my patients. This transcribed into not being confident with treatment plans and underserving my patients. [The MedSLP Collective has helped me] slowly re-gain confidence in my clinical skills. I have a renewed drive that has helped me push for updated treatment materials, instrumental swallowing exams, and better outcomes for my patients. The Collective has gotten me excited about being an SLP again and reminded me about the impact we can have on our patients. I have a new drive to educate staff, patients, and even graduate students on all the amazing things SLPs can do. I love that I can provide specific case examples [in the private facebook group or forum] and get an immediate response to a challenging case. Most SLPs do not have a ton of SLP coworkers or supervisors to help them with their clinical decision making.

Kristin Brodmerkel

I didn't have time to gain as much knowledge concerning EBP, before the [MedSLP] Collective I was lucky to read 1-2 articles a week. [The MedSLP Collective helped me accomplish presenting my case to begin a FEES program at my hospital and advocate for the use of TIMS in our radiology dept (we used a horrible DVD recorder at way less frames per second than needed), and I was approved for both!! The information [in the Collective] helped me take action toward my goals and not just think about my “to-do” list. It also helps to see that others have done it and listen to some of the problems they've run into.

Lydia Perkins, MA, CCC-SLP Memphis, TN

I spent quite a while working in the schools so I could have a schedule that lined up with my kids. While I have loved my years in the schools and the retirement I have built up there, I have always wanted to give the medical side a try. Neuro has always fascinated me but if I'm being totally honest, dysphagia scared me to death! I still remember being in grad school asking how I was supposed to tell what was going on based on just feeling with my hand on a patient's throat. The answer I got EVERY SINGLE TIME was that the more experience I got, I would just know. This always bugged me and was in the back of my mind as I began to explore making a change.

 

Somehow I stumbled on the Swallow Your Pride podcast which led me to the FB group “Med SLP Newbies.” In that group I learned about the Medical SLP Collective (formally the Medical SLP Solution) and joined right from the beginning. It was from those groups and the SYP podcast that I was able to create a continuing education wish list that I started chipping away at every spare minute I had. I would not have discovered all the fascinating courses without your creations Theresa. And all that knowledge gave me the confidence to make the leap and the assurance that all those years ago I was right — you can't evaluate swallow function just by feeling the throat! If that wasn't enough, when I finally started my new medical position, I had somewhere to turn to for answers without judgment and feeling like I'm bugging the only other SLP in my company with yet another question.

 

Every time I have a patient with a history I haven't encountered yet, I turn to the Med SLP Collective and there is a resource and/or handout that is perfect for my needs! And often there is even a webinar (for ASHA CEUs) to address the topic as well. I could not have transitioned to the medical side (and loved the process of doing so!) without the Medical SLP Collective! I am so happy with what I am doing now and I owe that success and my confidence to you! Thank you!!

Angela Clegg

Since I’m more confident and have expanded my knowledge-base, I’ve been able to better serve my patients. I was able to advocate to get a mobile FEES contract in my facility which has drastically improved my ability to treat dysphagia in a science-driven manner and my patients see results much quicker. I have the respect of the nurses, doctors, and my DOR because I can explain my clinical decisions in an effective and clear manner which I definitely attribute to the research I’ve been exposed to since joining MedSLP Collective.

Stephanie Schultheisz

“[The Collective has shown me that] implementation science is a thing and it is totally cool. SLP island doesn’t have to be a thing. Change is hard but we can work on things one step at a time.” 
Heather Clark

There are so many like-minded people in this Collective who truly strive to do their best and help those around them. Motivation and empowerment [help] to make small changes with big impacts on quality of patient care.  [I love] the camaraderie between everyone [I’ve] met. No cliques, no exclusions from conversations. Everyone seems genuinely interested in meeting new people. The quality of content the mentors provide is amazing.”

Sarah Vacha

“[I love the Collective because] I have met like-minded clinicians who are intelligent, and yet still face workplace barriers and are motivated to improve quality of care.”

Jen Biener

“[Three takeaways I have from the Collective are] other SLPs are out there struggling just like me – I’m not alone! You can success when faced with challenge at your workplace/with your caseload, if you work at it. How to work smarter – improved workflow and documentation.”

Kara Jones

“[The Collective has taught me about] gathering information on best practices for dysphagia and has helped me realize that we are all in this together and want to do better.”

Jillian Szymanski

“[The Collective has helped me] learn about imaging and interpretation of MRIs and functional applications of myofascial release for head and neck cancer. Everyone can learn from each other – even the mentors!”

Terri Ching

“I visit the Collective site AT LEAST once per day. Every time I get a new patient, or I need a resource for staff/family, I go to the Collective. If I can’t find what I need there, I go to the Facebook group. It’s such an amazing feeling knowing that I can ask a question and get a response (usually within 5 minutes) from people who seriously know the [information.] I am using the resources from the Collective and the Facebook group to do the best work I can during my CF year AND to make sure I get my dream job when it’s over.” 

Jennie Badovinac

“But Theresa, you don’t understand, I have a classic case of #myadminwontletme.”

You’ve probably experienced this before: Administrators won’t let you do the procedures the patients need. This is against the law, as Medicare says the patients need it. But for some reason administrators always look to medical SLPs to cut costs, like we’re the Walmart of therapy–prices can always go lower, in their view.

The physical therapists are getting 50 new treadmills a year $5K a pop, but they’ll nickel-and-dime us if we want a new technology for $500, that will improve the patient’s life dramatically.

Believe me, I get it, I once suffered from #MyAdminWontLetMe as well.

For so many years I convinced myself that the administration were the ones standing in my way of helping my patients achieve their goals, until I had an extremely supportive director and administrators and realized that maybe I was the problem.

I realized that administrators ultimately can be persuaded to make the best choices for patient care–but there does have to be a systematic method.

This is especially true now in the time of COVID-19 where our administrators are swimming uphill trying to keep up with the latest information, so they don't know about our little corner of the world until we educate them!

That’s why, through hard trial-and-error, I created DONE FOR YOU inservices

These systematized, step-by-step methods that are blind peer-reviewed with the LATEST evidence will help you get YES’s from your administrators quickly when before you were just getting a wall of no’s

And guess what?

One of the perks of being a member of the Med-SLP Collective is you’ll get them FREE.

You’ll never have a case of #MyAdminWontLetMe again once you start using these. It’s like a bazooka for the walls of resistance your administrators usually put up to you getting the equipment you need to provide optimal care for your patients.

“Patient handouts are extremely easy for the patients and their families to read..”

Are You at Risk for the #1 Reason SLPs Leave Their Job?

From talking to thousands of SLPs over the years, I know that the #1 reason SLPs leave their job is that the Directors are minute-hungry and are forcing patients to take more minutes than the patient can tolerate. Which is in fact an ethical violation, perhaps even rising to the level of borderline insurance fraud.

I know the moral character of members of the MedSLP Collective, and I know that ANY ethical violations or fraud in your surrounding environment erode your confidence in your workplace. And since these ethical violations are so commonplace in modern insurance-driven healthcare settings, it drives you crazy and makes you want to leave the career you’ve worked so hard to create.

This is a horrible situation I won’t tolerate, and I’ve worked hard to create a solution for you.

Using the resources in the MedSLP Collective, you can show the Director that there’s a whole population of people in your facility who desperately need SLP minutes, and aren’t getting them.

For example, many SLPs believe there is little they can do for people with dysarthria, and thus, they don’t recommend treatment for these patients. However, in the last few years, a wide variety of different treatment techniques have been developed–and if you haven’t been following the research (in all that extra free-time you have available as an SLP), you might not know about these techniques.

The same is true for people with dementia. These people often have difficulty communicating effectively, but it’s widely assumed in our field that there’s little that can be done to help these patients. However, it is within our scope of practice to evaluate and treat communication breakdowns with patients with dementia.

In other words, there’s all these patients passing through hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health, etc., who could legitimately use the minutes that Directors are so obsessed with racking-up. If the Directors can be persuaded to allow you to use minutes with these underserved patients who really need them, then they’ll stop trying to push minutes on patients who can’t tolerate all of them. Fraud solved–and it was you who solved it.

In the MedSLP Collective, you will have 24/7 support, which will allow you to solve these problems in your workplace, be the hero for your underserved patients, and make your workplace feel great again, instead of the moral swampland that it now is.

If you're a recent grad, don't you want to start your career off on the right foot so you don't get trapped in this situation?

I promise you, the support alone is worth much more than an entire year’s worth of the MedSLP Collective membership fee, and it’s just one of the many, many things you get when you join.

Are you ready?

”But Theresa, Why Should I Enroll in The MedSLP Collective When There Are So Many Other Courses on the Market?”

Yes, I know the MedSLP Collective is a bit more expensive than FREE courses that only give you a tiny bit of specialized information which you can only use in narrow circumstance.

But compared to what you’re getting–there really is no comparison.

The MedSLP Collective is the only membership site with monthly (sometimes 2 per month!) 2 hour webinars registered for ASHA CEUs that gives you:

  • A carefully-selected collection of the most relevant, blind peer-reviewed resources coming out each week. You just can’t get that anywhere else.
  • 30 world-class contributors who are working hard to give you only the latest blind peer reviewed research, thus minimizing the bias of other sites which often are promoting their own, untested theory.
  • Career Fulfillment education that not only teaches you therapy techniques, but teaches you also how to excel and thrive in the career, organizational, and business contexts in which you will apply those techniques. Basically, you’re going to learn how to give better care to your patients AND how to earn more money doing so. No other site teaches about $$$ AT ALL.
  • Our resources put the power back in your hands in your workplace, and basically lets you be your own boss, even if you have another boss. Because you’ll be so good at telling THEM what you need to do your job well, in a way that makes them give that to you with little or no hassle.
  • A vibrant, thriving community of fellow SLP practitioners and experts, who support each other, trade war stories, share knowledge and learning. It’s by far the best, highest-quality nationwide community of SLPs.
  • NO BULLIES in the forums. You’ve probably encountered this before: you join another Facebook group for SLPs, and the discussion is immediately shut down by some arrogant bully who thinks they know everything, and won’t get off their high horse. Because the Admins of those groups aren’t getting paid, they don’t do the hard work of moderating the forums, so they basically devolve into one big megaphone for whoever is the most dominant and loud-mouthed in the group. This ends up providing zero value, and all the people who actually want to contribute scatter away sooner or latter.
  • Because I take this work very seriously, we have several paid moderators who put in a tremendous effort to curate the group. There is ONLY high-quality discussion — and in fact all of the SLPs are there to contribute and learn from each other.
  • Weekly Action Sheets and videos that inspire you and propel you forward in your career and your skill as a clinician.
  • An entire library of past teaching materials, so you get years worth of resources the moment you sign up for even one month.

Basically, it comes down to this:

MedSLP Collective is the best continuing education program for Medical SLPs on the planet, and I’ve worked my tush off to make sure that’s true–so that you get the best Medical SLP education available anywhere, for a price you can afford.

Your peers are waiting for you.

“Being a forever member is a HUGE plus point because there will always be new resources to learn from.”

How Far Will Your Postpone the Success that You’ve Been Craving For?

Here’s the psychological profile of someone I know will never succeed in getting out of their career rut in medical SLP.

They blame all their problems on the doctors, nurses and administrators in their field.

They feel certain that the system is “rigged” against them, and they feel helpless in the face of that system.
They complain about investing money in continuing education courses they have to take every year to keep their license.

I’ve seen it again and again.

If a clinician is mired in these psychological traps, they’re creating their own hell for themselves, which they’ll never get out of unless they change their attitude.

Do you want to be one of them?

Do you want to remain stuck in this nightmare of helplessness and perceived victimization?

Or are you going to be one of the few people in your field who takes control of your own destiny?

Are you going to be one of the few who realizes that you actually do have a lot of control and influence over the future of your career…

But only if you take action now.

You know this is the next step you need

WHY

Because we are committed to keeping it a tight-knit, jam-packed-with-value-and-knowledge group of MedSLPs as it is right now!

We can always turn this into a quantity-over-quality group like many others, but we cannot compromise over quality.

This means that the time to kick imposter syndrome and the lack of confidence to the curb, is right now!

As I said – quality over quantity. We are committed to keeping it a tight-knit group where every new MedSLP can enjoy full support from our team of mentors.

If you want to know what secrets are kept in the remaining 180+ resources and in many other featuers inside our members area, you should wait no further and pick a plan of your choosing.

Look, I would not ask you to join the Medical SLP Collective if I didn’t have full confidence in the knowledge and support that this community + FB group + members area provide to MedSLPs.

But I’m not asking you to take my word for it; take a look at your fellow SLPs video and text reviews of this community, and let your common sense guide you to the true north.

Now

You can either say yes to any pricing plan that suits you the best or keep wondering how it would feel like, being able to have unlimited access to the in-the-trenches mentors and peer-reviewed resources.

Next time when a director ignores your opinion or a supervisor snubs you, you want to come back at them and open the faucet of knowledge that you’d have gained inside the Medical SLP Collective.

Next time when you get to handle a difficult case, you want to handle that quickly and professionally. Our resources and our unparalleled support can help you do that.
