Live WebinarTue, Jan 31, 2023 at 3:00 pm EST
Course: #10461Level: Introductory1 Hour
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. An overview of tracheostomy tube and mechanical ventilator management, including their effects on airflow, speech and swallowing, is provided in this course. Discussion includes speaking valves, common challenges, and ways to improve outcomes in this complex patient population.

Connecting Swallowing, Cognition, and Dignity: An Essential Clinical Pathway for Dysphagia in Persons with Dementia
Presented by Michelle Tristani, MS, CCC-SLP, CDP, PAC Trainer
Live WebinarThu, Feb 2, 2023 at 12:00 pm EST
Course: #10460Level: Intermediate1.5 Hours
A comprehensive, systematic clinical pathway to effectively assess and manage dysphagia in persons with dementia is described in this course. Common eating challenges and contraindications of enteral feeding for those with advanced stage dementia are addressed. Environmental modifications, swallow strategies and adaptive equipment that can enhance the safety and experience of oral intake are also discussed.

Breathe, Speak, Eat: What the SLP Needs to Know About Respiratory Failure
Presented by George Barnes, MS, CCC-SLP
VideoAudio
Course: #10445Level: Introductory1 Hour
This is Part 1 of a two-part series. Respiratory disease, respiratory failure, oral intubation, effects of intubation on the larynx and the swallow, and dysphagia management are discussed in this course. Risk factors and salient features of dysphagia after extubation are described in order to help clinicians effectively evaluate and treat their patients.

Swallowing Function: Differentiating Typical Variations from Pathological Impairment
Presented by Kendrea L. (Focht) Garand, PhD, CScD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S, CBIS, CCRE
Live WebinarTue, Feb 28, 2023 at 3:00 pm EST
Course: #10475Level: Advanced2 Hours
Motor variability refers to the natural variation that occurs in repeated task movements. Evidence for this task variability in swallowing, and how it can be influenced by age-related changes (presbyphagia), are described in this course. Discussion includes ways to improve diagnostic accuracy by using this information to differentiate typical variation from true impairment in swallowing performance.

Thickened Liquids in Clinical Practice: The Plot “Thickens”
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Live WebinarTue, Mar 14, 2023 at 3:00 pm EDT
Course: #10497Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Clinicians who utilize thickened liquids in their clinical practice are aware of their benefits, but what about the risks and contra-indications? Advantages and disadvantages of thickened liquids are reviewed in this course with a focus on clinical outcomes, including medication impacts, lung health, and hydration. Product types are evaluated to facilitate appropriate product choices.

Supporting Feeding in Patients with Impaired Cognition
Presented by Amanda Stead, PhD, CCC-SLP
Video
Course: #10301Level: Introductory1 Hour
Patients who are losing weight or demonstrating behaviors that decrease oral intake are at high risk for adverse events, especially in the geriatric population. The impact of impaired cognition on feeding, and strategies to assess and treat patients who are struggling at mealtimes, are described in this course.

Aspiration Pneumonia Management in Complex Cases: Putting Theories into Practice
Presented by George Barnes, MS, CCC-SLP
Video
Course: #10276Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. Theories of aspiration pneumonia risk management are described in this course, including use of decision-making frameworks and management guidelines in interdisciplinary teams. Medically complex case studies are discussed to show how these theories can be put into practice to improve patient outcomes.

Aspiration Pneumonia Management in Complex Cases: Beyond the Swallow
Presented by George Barnes, MS, CCC-SLP
Video
Course: #10271Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 1 of a two-part series. How aspiration pneumonia develops, and a risk management approach that focuses not just on swallowing but on evaluating and treating the whole patient, are discussed. A multi-step system that can improve risk assessment and decision-making for patients with complex medical conditions and multiple risk factors for aspiration pneumonia is presented.

Reflux: Impact on Our Patients and Evidence-Based Treatments, Part 2
Presented by Denise Dougherty, MA, SLP
VideoAudio
Course: #10196Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 2 of two-part series that provides an overview of reflux and its impact on our patients. This course discusses diagnostic tests for reflux and management with medications and diet.

Presented by Gabriella Barone, MS, CCC-SLP
Video
Course: #10197Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course provides an overview of the medical SLP’s vital role in management of patients with Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). Discussion includes swallow screenings, clinical and instrumental swallow evaluations and speech-language evaluations for this population, as well as considerations for tracheostomized or post-extubation patients or those on supplemental oxygen. Personal protective equipment (PPE) is also addressed.
