SPEACS-2 Communication Training Program (1 CE)

Sunday, September 1, 2013 (All day) to Tuesday, September 1, 2015 (All day)

The SPEACS-2 training program was developed from a series of research studies (See Resources tab for publications from the studies). The SPEACS projects are a multidisciplinary effort to improve communication with patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) who are unable to speak because an artificial airway (oral or tracheostomy) is in place. These patients may also require mechanical ventilation (respirator) and sedating medications that make thinking and communication more difficult.

Communication difficulty is a frightening and frustrating problem and is one of the most common and most distressing symptoms reported by mechanically ventilated ICU patients. Nurses, speech language pathologists, physicians, respiratory therapists, and others are working together to address this problem and to improve the experience and quality of critical care for patients and families. Contact Mary Beth Happ (happ.3@osu.edu) with comments or questions.

To enroll in the online module and read more about the program, please visit the SPEACS-2 website.
