DYSPHAGIA WORKSHOP AT CHILDREN'S CARE, FEB. 16-17, 2012POSTED: 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.
