WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Q1 What do you find most challenging when writing client reports #wespeechies? so far we have talked about the needs of different readers
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Some ideas that have come up: including a plain English summary at the end/beginning, use of headings, discussing the report #wespeechies
Cᴀʀᴏʟɪɴᴇ Bᴏᴡᴇɴ 🇦🇺🇳🇿 @speechwoman
Q1 #WeSpeechies.it's been a while since I wrote a client report,but the most challenging were medico-legal(heaps of reading) & 2nd opinions.
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Some #wespeechies have mentioned the need to comply with legal requirements, ethical obligations and workplace rules - its hard
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@speechwoman indeed - we had a discussion last night about the demands of these types of reports - and do they really need all they ask for? #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Q2 #wespeechies - what do you or your workplace do that works well? This question has been discussed already #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
some workplaces schedule regular report writing sessions discuss terminology, act as critical readers, give each other feedback #wespeechies
Cᴀʀᴏʟɪɴᴇ Bᴏᴡᴇɴ 🇦🇺🇳🇿 @speechwoman
Hey, @WeSpeechies, waddaya doing INSTEAD of chatting about REPORT WRITING for the next 45 mins❓ Do please join the #WeSpeechies chat now.🙃😎

WeSpeechies @wespeechies
sorry everyone, my internet just crashed back on board the lighthouse now now #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
I have been struck by the thought that we focus on developing clinical writing skills in our #SLP2B & #SLT2B but...#WeSpeechies
Cᴀʀᴏʟɪɴᴇ Bᴏᴡᴇɴ 🇦🇺🇳🇿 @speechwoman
@wespeechies As a curmudgeon for medico-legal I would restrict the report to what I felt OK being cross-examined on.That streamlined things. #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
... writing benefits from ongoing practice and for example what about when #wespeechies change workplace?
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@SpeechTherapyUK I agree that NQTs need this but am thinking practising report writing is a lifelong skill #WeSpeechies
Emily Dawes @EmilyDawesSLP
@wespeechies I like these - plain English summary with simple explanations for parents -esp those w/ #DevLangDis &/or literacy difficulties #WeSpeechies
Amelia Kennedy @_ameliark
@wespeechies @SpeechTherapyUK It definitely is! All the SLPs I know are always tweaking the way they write reports #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@SpeechTherapyUK @speechwoman ML? #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@EmilyDawesSLP Agreed - in a paper I want to talk about tomorrow, health literacy is key to our responsibility in writing reports #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@_ameliark @SpeechTherapyUK so what arre some useful things we learn from this tweaking - how to build up the skills set? #WeSpeechies
Cᴀʀᴏʟɪɴᴇ Bᴏᴡᴇɴ 🇦🇺🇳🇿 @speechwoman
#WeSpeechies https://t.co/V6z2uv9dfl
Emily Dawes @EmilyDawesSLP
@wespeechies Q1 trying to cater to different audiences, especially when you have to use workplace proformas (which could be improved!) #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
my apologies for the gaps, was rebooting computer and trying to tweet from other devices - a bit of a juggling act #wespeechies
Amelia Kennedy @_ameliark
Q2 Taking technical info/scores out of report body is something we've been doing which works well for readability #WeSpeechies
Cᴀʀᴏʟɪɴᴇ Bᴏᴡᴇɴ 🇦🇺🇳🇿 @speechwoman
#WeSpeechies Remember to tag, @SpeechTherapyUK https://t.co/qTgnxSERhk
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@EmilyDawesSLP Yes, its hard to prioritise time to update pro formas and templates but given their impact, should be a priority #wespeechies
Cᴀʀᴏʟɪɴᴇ Bᴏᴡᴇɴ 🇦🇺🇳🇿 @speechwoman
@wespeechies You are my hero, #WeSpeechies
Emily Dawes @EmilyDawesSLP
Good question -I don't think so! How do you Ax? I think keeping it as simple/clear as possible usually caters to all audiences? #WeSpeechies https://t.co/ITND2Eko8J
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@_ameliark Interestingly, in my work in #YJ with @Natalie_KP3 we have been doing the same - having sections with different purposes #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
One topic that hasn't really come p yet this week is the HO ICF framework #wespeechies... which bring s me to Q3..
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Q3 How do you draw on frameworks such as the ICF in your reports #wespeechies?
Emily Dawes @EmilyDawesSLP
@wespeechies I agree - the goal of the report is to clearly communicate a message, so any report proforma should be simple and clear #WeSpeechies
Amelia Kennedy @_ameliark
@wespeechies We've done this periodically - a valuable exercise #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@_ameliark I'd love to hear more - from any workplaces that do this - do you structure the sessions in any particular way #wespeechies ?
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
I'm not sure if this one got tweeted out=would love to hear about this: Q2 #wespeechies - what do you or your workplace do that works well?
Tim Kittel @TImothyKittel
@wespeechies Hello #WeSpeechies! It’s just hit 5pm here, so logging on to full swing Chat time!
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
The ICF reminds us to consider functional implications etc in our reports, still many tho' seem to adopt a medical model #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@TImothyKittel I have need of your memes as I keep crashing #wespeechies

WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Many #wespeechies have talked about this - I would love someone to write up a series of guidelines or tips for when doing this - sooo useful https://t.co/nm34DzNLVa
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
I wonder if any #wespeechies who have done creative writing type course could add to the discussion over the week? about what helps improve?
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@EmilyDawesSLP @TImothyKittel oh yeah #wespeechies
Emily Dawes @EmilyDawesSLP
@wespeechies I think linking to activity/participation in terms of both strengths weaknesses is critical (I.e. Implications for classroom) #WeSpeechies
Amelia Kennedy @_ameliark
@wespeechies Just general discussion in small groups - read each others reports, note differences, how can we get more consistency. #WeSpeechies
Emily Dawes @EmilyDawesSLP
@wespeechies I also think that doing this (talking about impact on activity/participation) makes the report easier to access/understand #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
I think ideas about drafting, re-drafting, using macrostructure , headings, critical readers etc may all be of help #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@trendinaliaAU we are behind David Warner but ahead of question time (!) #wespeechies
Amelia Kennedy @_ameliark
@EmilyDawesSLP @wespeechies Yes this is the information that teachers and parents really want, I think. #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@_ameliark I hear that your workplace values spending time on improving report writing - that is good to hear as well #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
My last question is partly why I volunteered for the week - for me to learn and improve my own skills .. so here it is #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Q4 What useful clinical report writing tips, resources or links can you share with other #wespeechies?
Cᴀʀᴏʟɪɴᴇ Bᴏᴡᴇɴ 🇦🇺🇳🇿 @speechwoman
My website Glossary arose from a teachers' focus group concluding that #WeSpeechies' reports were "impenetrable" https://t.co/yhdgo9MGhY 1/2
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
this week has already thrown up lots of challenges for #wespeechies old and new in writing reports for our many and varied audiences
Amelia Kennedy @_ameliark
Yes - many reports follow structure of standardised test used. I'm trying to get out of that trap! ICF a much better way to go. #WeSpeechies https://t.co/M9LhgBtFst
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@speechwoman 'Reports from speech pathologists tend to be ambiguous, contain excessive jargon' from a paper on the list #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@speechwoman ... and are frequently written at a level that requires high level language skills hmm - we should aim to be better than that #wespeechies
Tim Kittel @TImothyKittel
@wespeechies Oops. #WeSpeechies. I think I should abandon ship too after my day... https://t.co/fT0kRFAOam

Cᴀʀᴏʟɪɴᴇ Bᴏᴡᴇɴ 🇦🇺🇳🇿 @speechwoman
I wrote the original #WeSpeechies Glossary collaboratively with motivated teachers. It taught me a lot about how jargon-ridden we are. 2/2
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@_ameliark interestingly if you look at suggested ones on-line, they focus so much on scores and not what that means #wespeechies
Tim Kittel @TImothyKittel
@wespeechies @speechwoman And often languish at the back of a school file, never to be read. Unless #WeSpeechies make it infinitely readable.
Amelia Kennedy @_ameliark
A4 A simple tip: be super wary of copy-paste! CTRL+H is your friend. #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@TImothyKittel @speechwoman agreed - so many exiting LDC kids used to have huge reports that were never/rarely read - such a workload for the #wespeechies too
Tim Kittel @TImothyKittel
@wespeechies I WILL BE. AFTER I HOSE MYSELF DOWN. (No one told me about days like these when I was at Uni). #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
to foster respectful and effective relationships between families and clinicians, speech pathology reports must be accessible #wespeechies
Amelia Kennedy @_ameliark
@wespeechies Absolutely. Reliance on proformas exacerbates this - often means plugging scores into description of Ax tool and not much more #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@_ameliark We have had a few cases at #SPAethics which have included documentation that has fallen foul of copy/paste then privacy issues #wespeechies
Prof Bronwyn Hemsley @BronwynHemsley
@wespeechies Sorry I am held up Suze! I cannot emerge at the moment :8 #WeSpeechies
Tim Kittel @TImothyKittel
@wespeechies Let's just say someone REALLY misunderstood the instruction, 'Don't shove the peacock in the #WeSpeechies face'
WeSpeechies @wespeechies

@_ameliark A fashion for a while for checklist type of reports, most families hate them as they are so generic, save time but at what cost #wespeechies
Amelia Kennedy @_ameliark
@wespeechies I don't doubt it. Parents do NOT appreciate a different child's name or wrong pronoun in their child's report #wespeechies

WeSpeechies @wespeechies
I think a few issues have emerged from the chat that fit with the questions and overall theme #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Comprehendible written reports are important to support consolidation of information presented/discussed verbally #wespeechies
Amelia Kennedy @_ameliark
@wespeechies Massive lists of generic recommendation were commonplace a little while ago and I still sometimes see them. Limited usefulness. #WeSpeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@_ameliark agreed - and can ((and do) contact @speechpathaus ethics to make a complaint, our reports really do reflect our professionalism #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
@_ameliark Agree - I have seen a few set up as pull off pages to put on wall/keep - can work if well organised & not too long #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies

Health literacy: degree to which individuals have capacity to process/understand health information to make informed decisions #wespeechies
WeSpeechies @wespeechies
Do our reports meet the health literacy needs and levels of our clients and carers? What about their readability? to ponder ##wespeechies
