Critical Thinking in Dysphagia Management

What You'll Learn

Many swallowing clinicians report that they do not have the resources that they need to provide the best care for individuals with swallowing impairments. Unfortunately, many resources that swallowing clinicians need are beyond their reach, but within the control of other medical professionals and administrators of medical facilities. Using analogies and terminology that all can understand, this course discusses the barriers that impact best patient care in dysphagia management. It demonstrates how other medical professionals and administrators can be unintended barriers to best practice in dysphagia management. This course also informs the learner about professionals other than swallowing clinicians are stake holders in the status of dysphagia management, as swallowing impairments impact readmissions and increase cost, morbidity and mortality if it is not properly managed.
