Functional neurological voice disorders
An enigma and its management: Whilst functional neurological voice disorders (FNVD) routinely present in clinical practice, their phenomenology and management have historically remained a mystery.

Gain invaluable insights and boost your confidence in assessment and treatment of FNVD through our comprehensive course led by expert Dr Jan Baker. Tailored for speech-language pathologists, ENT specialists and voice researchers, this program delves into FNVD phenomenology, principles and practical applications for management. Explore the latest research and insights with regards to FNVD in the context of FND and apply the latest terminology, classifications, and operational definitions. Analyse case studies and learn management principles and skills for devising tailored assessment and treatment plans for FNVD cases, honing your practical expertise for clinical practice.

The microcredential is a credential endorsed by The University of Sydney, signifying an individual's proficiency in a specialised skill set. Upon successful completion, participants are awarded a digital badge, serving as a verifiable emblem of their advanced skills that can be displayed on professional networks and platforms.

The short course encompasses the same guided education and evaluative feedback as the microcredential, but operates without a pass/fail threshold. Participants who complete the course receive a certificate that acknowledges their commitment and learning experience, rather than a digital badge that signifies proficiency.
