Speech-language pathologists save lives, discover the undiscovered and help people be social beings. We save lives by using the latest evidence and best practice to help people swallow again. Through this process, we help to avoid potentially life-threatening consequences of illness.
We discover the undiscovered by revealing the person inside when someone is experiencing extreme communication difficulties. We give patients a voice and family members hope.
We help people to be social beings by working with those who are isolated due to communication difficulties and trouble eating and swallowing.
Speech language pathologists provide service to patients with communication and swallowing difficulties, educate future clinicians and advance clinical research. We strive to advance practice through developing and piloting innovative roles for care delivery and developing and implementing medical directives and delegated acts to enable practice at a full scope.
Services are offered to people who are experiencing swallowing or communication difficulties as a result of cancer at
