POSTED: DEC 07, 2011

Swallowing doesn't end at the pharynx. As such, comprehensive dysphagia interventions cannot consist solely of muscle exercises, maneuvers, compensatory postures and diet modifications. To ensure the highest quality of care is achieves, clinicians must consider the other factors that contribute to swallowing difficulties, such as esophageal abnormalities, acid reflux disease, and pharmacology. Presented by and for the clinician in the real-world setting, this clinically relevant seminar will cover in depth:

  • - Esophageal screenings and the role of the SLP
  • - Acid reflux disease and LPR in adults and children
  • - Drug induced dysphagia
  • - Model for pneumonia risk and prevention
  • - Water protocols
  • - Oral hygiene programs
  • - Xerostomia

Workshop provides 12 contact hours.  Hours will be 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on Feb. 16, and 8:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. on Feb. 17. Cost is $300 per person. Call Christina at (605) 782-2371 for details.

Every day I find myself smiling as I walk down the hallway; I just cannot get over the fact that this is my job. The smiles and laughter that comes from the students I work with rejuvenate my commitment to them and makes my soul feel whole. The thing I enjoy most about working at Children's Care, is knowing that I am helping to make a difference in the lives of every child and family I work with, and that makes me feel like I'm leading a purpose driven life.
