This session will discuss the benefits and challenges of interprofessional practice and education (IPP and IPE) when working with patients with Parkinson’s disease, with applications to other complex, chronic conditions. The session will examine three current interprofessional models for the care of people with Parkinson’s disease to illustrate the benefits of a collaborative model. The presenters and attendees will generate and share practical solutions to challenges SLPs may encounter when working on an interprofessional team across a range of practice settings.

She received her doctorate in speech and hearing sciences from the University of Arizona, Tucson. Her training included a focus in the areas of neuroscience and motor control.

Fox is a world leader in administration of LSVT LOUD speech treatment for people with Parkinson's disease. She began working with Dr. Lorraine Ramig more than 20 years ago to conduct efficacy research on LSVT in people with Parkinson's disease. Fox was the first to apply this treatment to disorders other than Parkinson's disease (e.g., multiple sclerosis) and pioneered the application to pediatric populations including children with cerebral palsy and Down syndrome. Fox worked closely on the development of a physical therapy program, LSVT BIG, that was modeled after the speech treatment protocol. She has been a key part of the LSVT training and certification course faculty, developing and delivering LSVT LOUD and LSVT BIG training and certification courses globally. She has numerous publications in these areas of research and has presented extensively nationally and internationally.
