Event description

Description

Speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are the primary providers of dysphagia and report spending the majority of their practice managing swallowing disorders in their healthcare settings. However, formal and informal training on normal and impaired swallowing for SLPs is lacking and inconsistent across academic and clinical training domains. Critical thinking in dysphagia management is needed to significantly shift SLP practice patterns. The overall goals of this course are for attendees to leave with the ability to apply objective physiologic metrics, to utilize a clinical decision tree, and to empower attendees with critical talking points to advocate for resources for patients with dysphagia.
