Management of Dysphagia: Building Consistency Across the Continuum of Care

Description

Dysphagia clinicians are faced with great deal of information, much of it often conflicting, from a wide variety of sources and must differentiate between anecdotal information, evidence, and conventional wisdom. Our assessment process is designed to effectively identify aspiration—but not to evaluate
that aspiration in the context of individual risk factors and preferences.

This course will use a case-discussion format to assist clinicians in assessment of risk to each client’s respiratory status, nutrition and hydration, and quality of life. We will also discuss risks and benefits of frequently used treatment modalities, including diet modifications, exercise, and compensatory strategies, with a goal of assisting clinicians in developing effective, targeted interventions. Dysphagia clinicians working in acute, subacute, home health, and ambulatory settings will leave this course armed with the skills and knowledge to develop treatment plans that take into account individual risk factors, target specific impairments, and improve client adherence and participation.

How to Prepare

Learning Objectives

  1. Differentiate between normal swallow variability and dysphagia to reduce over-identification of swallowing disorders.
  2. Use recent research to assess not only risk of aspiration but also risk of aspiration pneumonia.
  3. Evaluate both the risks and benefits of thickened liquids and dietary modifications for individual clients with oral-pharyngeal dysphagia.
  4. Develop a dysphagia management plan that is targeted to address the individual’s underlying physiological impairment(s).
