Course Description

Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders are complex and involve many body systems.    As myofunctional therapists, we often serve as a client’s case manager across disciplines, therefore, we must understand the roles of different providers and help caregivers/patients maximize their referral visits.  We must identify, prioritize and coordinate treatment while staying within our scope of practice in order to create the best outcomes. This course will explore how to identify potential medical partners, initiate professional connections, strategize getting our concerns addressed and show methods for maintaining collaboration on shared cases.  The timing of interventions and collaboration with shared cases will be discussed.  A basic understanding of OMDs is helpful to get the most from this course.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Participants will be able to list 3 providers that are likely to be on an OMD team.
  2. Participants will be able to describe 3 methods of information sharing between providers.
  3. Participants will be able to identify the basic elements of initial visits with varied providers.
  4. Participants will be able to list various types of body workers and modalities that may be helpful.
  5. Participants will be able to explain why myofunctional therapists are well suited to be case managers.
