This course includes four recorded sessions from the 2015 online conference “Complex Cases in Adult Dysphagia.” These sessions focus on methods, skills, and issues to consider when treating patients who are critically ill. The conference included a total of 12 sessions, with the broad goal of giving SLPs evidence-based skills to manage tough cases, develop clinical intuition, and determine the most appropriate plan for a patient's individual condition.
The four sessions in this course are:
- Improving Patient Outcomes After Critical Illness, by Dale M. Needham and Martin B. Brodsky
- Identifying and Treating Medication-Associated Dysphagia, by Lynette Carl and Peter R. Johnson
- Patient (and Caregiver) Engagement in Complex Dysphagia, by Paula Leslie
- Demonstrating Patient Outcomes in Dysphagia, by Alice K. Silbergleit
You will be able to:
- Identify new approaches for assessment and treatment of swallowing disorders in patients who have been critically ill
- Describe measures and treatments to recommend to reduce symptoms that accompany medication-associated dysphagia
- Integrate frameworks that support robust and ethically sound decision making
- Distinguish the components of a successful outcomes measuring tool for dysphagia
