DtH 17: Expert Rant with Julie Barkmeier Kraemer

“If we’ve got an area of our field where somebody dies because we made a mistake, then we have got to have standards the same way every other medical profession does.” Julie Barkmeier Kraemer, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, a voice, swallowing, and airway disorder expert, roused up your Down the Hatch (Swallowing Podcast)hosts Ianessa and Alicia and in our Expert Rant #2 (AKA “Passion Piss-off”). Dr. Kraemer recommends SLP behaviors that win the confidence of physicians and, especially, for SLPs to avoid “lolly-gagging” into a medical institution (<- this will be funny later… promise). Be the change SLPEEPS!

    This is probably my favourite DtH episode (and that’s saying something)! This discussion brings so many issues and concerns to light and underscores my mantra that we need to “elevate our profession”. I’m curious what JBK’s other two rant topics were or if this conversation eventually addressed them. If not, she needs an expert rant #2, part 2! Thanks for this podcast and for absolutely elevating our profession.

      Shana thanks for your comment. JBK is both well respected in our field and interesting to listen to so we, too, would love a Part Deux! And, we completely agree with your push to ELEVATE OUR field… change is needed!
