Pearson's EBP Briefs are case-based courses designed to assist with everyday decision-making in clinical practice. This case will examine the clinical question, “Among individuals who have been diagnosed with thin liquid aspiration by instrumental evaluation, does sipping one measured small sip versus unregulated sip sizes reduce the frequency of or even completely eliminate aspiration when evaluated instrumentally? ” The related literature search and analysis, along with the resultant clinical decision and application to clinical practice, will also be discussed. A relevant assessment tool for this case is the CLQT+ (Helm-Estabrooks, 2017).
