Rebecca Boersma

MA, CCC-SLP

Rebecca works as a speech-language pathologist at George Washington University Hospital in the Outpatient Rehabilitation Center in Washington, DC. Rebecca focuses on person-centered, functional approaches for neurogenic disorders and treats patients with stroke, traumatic brain injury, mild cognitive impairment, dementia, neuromuscular diseases, and long COVID. Rebecca first began working with patients with COVID-19 in acute care in 2020 and has since helped launch the Post-COVID-19 Outpatient Rehab Recovery Clinic to serve individuals with persistent cognitive, voice, and swallowing difficulties post COVID-19. Rebecca has presented multiple times on the SLP's role in post-COVID care, including presentations through ASHA and the American Physical Therapy Association. She currently is the program lead for the long-COVID rehab clinic at George Washington University Hospital and is motivated to both learn and share about this novel long-COVID population.

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 87 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 19 Minutes

This course is a recording of a previously hosted live webinar event. Polling and question submission features are not available for this recording. Format and structure may differ from those of standard MedBridge courses.

Fatigue, postexertional malaise (PEM), and cognitive impairment are among the most prevalent symptoms of long COVID. Because of the novelty of this population, there is limited research, clinical guidance, or awareness of rehabilitation's role in long COVID management. Physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists are in unique positions to help optimize outcomes in long COVID given their experience addressing similar functional impairments in other patient populations.

This webinar will help practitioners identify appropriate screening techniques that will determine patients' need for various medical and/or rehab specialists. By attending this session, participants can expect to feel more equipped to screen for and evaluate long COVID with an individualized, patient-centered approach.

Management of Cognitive-Communication Disorders in Long COVID Patients (Recorded Webinar)

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 89 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 33 Minutes

Neurocognitive impairment and fatigue are considered some of the most prevalent neurological symptoms of long COVID. Speech-language pathologists are in a unique position to help optimize outcomes in the novel long-COVID population because of their experience addressing neurocognitive impairment in other patient populations. Given the novelty of long COVID, there is minimal research, clinical guidance, or awareness of the SLP's role regarding this population. This webinar will cover the emerging research on long-COVID neurological manifestations and identify how SLPs can maximize patient outcomes using evidence-based treatment. By attending this session, participants can expect to feel more equipped to identify, evaluate, and treat common post-COVID cognitive-communication symptoms with an individualized, patient-centered approach.
