Following is an interview with Beth C. Vaughan-Wrobel, EdD, RN, FAAN, associate director/director of education, Schmieding Center for Senior Health and Education. The interviewer is Barbara Shadden of the University of Arkansas.
Speech-language pathologists and audiologists serving older clients recognize the need for interdisciplinary service delivery that focuses on client function while providing comprehensive assessment and management. Unfortunately, there are few strong models for such health care delivery systems. One unique, but successful, model is provided by the Schmieding Center for Senior Health and Education in Northwest Arkansas. Founded in 1999, the Schmieding Center represents a type of unusual and challenging, but workable, partnership that is emerging in geriatric health care and education delivery.
