The Essentials of Dysphagia Evaluation - Healthcare Seminar

(formerly Evaluation and Treatment of the Dysphagia Patient: Bedside Assessment and MBS Interpretation)

PROGRAM DETAILS

Understanding the Dysphagia Patient
In order to evaluate a patient, health care professionals must be familiar with numerous disorders which may impact swallowing. Disorders are an important consideration, however, one must be aware of the impact of various medications on the swallowing mechanism.

This one-day course will discuss disorders and the potential impact on the oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal stages of swallowing, as well as medications often prescribed. In addition, bedside evaluation will be outlined and various dysphagia assessments will be presented for consideration in the evaluation process. If you are not utilizing a standardized evaluation, specific red flags will be identified that you can add to your evaluation checklist.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Recognize who is at risk for dysphagia and why
  • Understand disorders that may impact the oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal swallow
  • Identify medications that adversely affect the swallowing mechanism
  • Discuss function of specific muscles in the oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal stages of swallow
  • Identify assessments available for use in the bedside evaluation

Please bring a stethoscope with you to this seminar.
