Dysphagia may be caused by many underlying medical etiologies, and the hospital-based SLP must navigate a comprehensive world of medical diagnoses and be prepared to accurately evaluate and plan dysphagia treatment. This session presents a model for using medical chart review, online resources, swallow mechanism knowledge, and cultivated diagnostic and treatment skills to approach dysphagia in patients with any medical diagnosis.

This course is a recorded session from the 2021 online conference “Maximizing Outcomes for Medically Complex Patients of All Ages.”

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • list three aspects of the human neurologic system that may be affected in the acute stages of disease and the swallow mechanism examination signs to watch for
  • identify one indicator each for potential or contraindication for dysphagia treatment in acute neurologic disease when planning intervention
  • list at least three factors identified by clinical swallow evaluation that may indicate a need for instrumental assessment for treatment planning
