Laryngectomy Webinar: Post Op to Discharge Webinar is a one hour recorded webinar which provides information on how to care for patients with laryngectomy immediately post-op including pulmonary health, humidification needs, stoma care, suctioning, and communication. The instructor also discusses the difference between laryngectomy and tracheostomy so as not to confuse the two in clinical practice, which can be devastating for the patient. Education and knowledge about appropriate care for patients following laryngectomy is required in order to provide optimal outcomes for these patients. This course is available for 0.1 ASHA CEUs.
