Course Summary (0.6 CEUs): This comprehensive one-day live streaming dysphagia course was presented by 12 clinical and research swallowing disorder experts on February 28, 2017. The course begins with a review of the basics of the normal swallowing mechanics, taking neurology and age into consideration. It then moves into evaluation techniques, coping mechanisms, and diet modifications. From there, we move into rehabilitation and address exercises, device-driven options, and biofeedback techniques. It wraps up with surgical options, methods for staying healthy, and a panel discussion on living with dysphagia.
In May 2017, the NFOSD teamed up with Dysphagia Grand Rounds to host a webinar on electrical stimulation. Participants were encouraged to read a research article prior to attending the webinar. Below is the recording of the webinar, presentation description, presenter bios, and the link to the free-access article.
