Panel Discussion: Airway, Communication and Swallowing Management in Tracheostomy and Laryngectomy Patients during the COVID-19 Pandemic

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic significant changes have occurred in airway, communication and swallowing management in tracheostomy and laryngectomy patients and practice has been impacted since the onset of the pandemic. New ways of working and new processes have emerged to continue to provide care, and new evidence has become available. Many countries are now seeing a surge in cases. The focus of this panel will be to discuss factors that are currently relevant specifically for airway, communication and swallowing management in tracheostomy and laryngectomy patients across the continuum of care, including recovering COVID-19 patients.
