Voice care is an important aspect in the successful treatment of patients with non-organic dysphonia. No previous study has examined the specific effect of voice care programmes or the comparative effectiveness of the delivery of these programmes across two healthcare professionals (speech and language therapists and ENT nurses). We describe a pilot study that provides preliminary data that suggests a short, easily deliverable voice care programme is (i) effective in reducing patients' perception of their dysphonia and (ii) equally effectively administered by an ENT nurse compared with a speech and language therapist. The study provides a firm base for continued research.
