Vocal Care and Rates of Treatment Follow-up for Transgender Voice Patients

Johns Hopkins laryngologist Simon Best summarizes findings from a study that identified factors that help transgender patients follow through with the recommended course of treatment for vocal care. Improving modifiable factors such as the availability of telemedicine for patients who live far away and the parsing of treatment focus by system resulted in both a higher rate of follow through and better outcomes.
