This webinar will explore an expanded approach to dysphagia assessment and treatment designed to maximize an individual’s eating and swallowing safety, efficiency, and pleasure. Traditional management approaches typically view dysphagia as a mechanical and/or physiologic problem. By contrast, the expanded approach explained in the webinar strives to give the clinician a more holistic portrait of the patient’s lived experience with dysphagia. The expanded approach to evaluation incorporates a wider array of measurement tools from across health care domains while maximizing efficiency so the broader assessment does not require additional time. The expanded approach to treatment includes recommendations for diet changes as well as tips for facilitating the use of evidence-based practices.

Learning Objectives:
You will be able to:

  • describe challenges of the physiologic orientation to dysphagia treatment and how to overcome them
  • describe the shortcomings of instrumented examination and how to overcome them
  • identify tools that can be used to assess the patient’s readiness for treatment and quality of life response to dysphagia management
