The buzzword is multidisciplinary team. It needs to be more than a buzzword; and it needs to be more than a model. Teamwork is reality in Management of the Voice and Its Disorders. The volume transcends traditional professional separation to successfully blend the knowledge bases of each voice-related discipline, based on the collaboration of chapter authors for more than 20 years. Chapter writers are from laryngology, speech-language pathology, psychiatry, and singing pedagogy, with coverage ranging from anatomy and physiology to assessment and treatment for all voice conditions across the lifespan.
