Abnormal Findings during Endoscopy: When to Refer
Presented by Joy Hesse, MA, CCC-SLP
Live WebinarWed, Aug 15, 2018 at 8:00 pm EDT
Course: #8538 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will discuss case examples of abnormal anatomy of the nasal cavity, nasopharynx, hypopharynx and larynx in adults, compiled over 20 years of evaluating and treating voice and swallowing disorders in an Otolaryngology practice.

"Normal" Anatomical Findings during Flexible Endoscopy
Presented by Joy Hesse, MA, CCC-SLP
Video
Course: #8510 Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course will discuss anatomy of the nasal cavity, nasopharynx, oropharynx, hypopharynx and larynx in adults, as viewed endoscopically. Normal variations in anatomy that would NOT necessitate referral to an ENT will be described.

Aspiration Pneumonia: It's Not Just Aspiration
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Live WebinarTue, Sep 11, 2018 at 2:00 pm EDT
Course: #8578 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Do dysphagia and aspiration inevitably lead to aspiration pneumonia? Our current evidence base suggests that the answer is, in fact, no. This course will enable clinicians to identify the clients on their caseload who are at higher risk for illness and to identify and address those risk factors that can be modified to reduce the likelihood of aspiration-related illness.

Pharmacology and Swallowing
Presented by Angela Mansolillo, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
VideoAudio
Course: #8464 Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
Speech Language Pathologists are often asked to make recommendations for safe swallowing of medications for patients with dysphagia, but have limited information about pharmacodynamics. This course will provide clinicians with the information they need to understand and manage swallowing-related medication effects, identify potential impacts of food and thickener on medication effectiveness, and prevent medication errors in their clients with dysphagia.

Treating Oral Phase Dysphagia in Adults: Principles and Evidence
Presented by Nancy B. Swigert, MA, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Video
Course: #8422 Level: Advanced2 Hours
To treat oral dysphagia, the SLP must select and use appropriate compensatory strategies, including bolus modifications and postural strategies, as well as implement rehabilitative techniques designed to achieve a change in physiologic function. Limited evidence exists for many oral phase rehabilitative techniques; therefore, this course will describe and discuss the related principles of neural plasticity, motor learning and neuromuscular treatments that the SLP must understand in order to effectively treat patients with oral dysphagia.

Dentition: Oral Health, Hygiene and the Swallow (Part 2)
Presented by Denise Dougherty, MA, SLP
VideoAudio
Course: #8362 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 2 of a two-part series. This course will address the importance of mouth care, help the SLP formulate talking points to educate staff, identify the "how-to" for mouth care and provide resources for developing a mouth care protocol.

Dentition: Oral Health, Hygiene and the Swallow (Part 1)
Presented by Denise Dougherty, MA, SLP
VideoText
Course: #8360 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This is Part 1 of a two-part series. This course will provide information on the impact of aging on dentition, the connection between chewing and saliva, the impact of dentures/lack of dentition on mastication, and diet selection.

Key Elements of Picky Eaters: Feeding Therapy
Presented by Jessica Reva, MS, CCC-SLP
VideoAudioText
Course: #8343 Level: Introductory1 Hour
This is Part 2 of two-part series. This course will review therapeutic techniques for feeding difficulties in pediatric patients and how to add new foods to the picky eater’s diet. Patient case studies will be provided for easy application of the course content.

Key Elements of Picky Eaters: Feeding Assessment
Presented by Jessica Reva, MS, CCC-SLP
VideoAudioText
Course: #8304 Level: Introductory1 Hour
This is Part 1 of a two-part series. This course will review causes of feeding difficulties in pediatric patients and how to complete an effective assessment. Patient case studies will be provided for easy application of the course content.

Pearson's EBP Briefs: The Effectiveness of Spaced Retrieval on Improving Self-Feeding and Use of Compensatory Swallowing Strategies in Individuals with Dementia Residing in a Long-Term Care Facility.
Presented by Ryan S. Husak, MS, CCC-SLP, Christen Guffey Page, PhD, CCC-SLP
Text
Course: #8322 Level: Advanced1 Hour
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, “Do adults with dementia living in a long-term care (LTC) facility who receive Spaced Retrieval (SR) training, compared to adults with dementia living in a long-term care facility who do not receive SR training, show improvement in self-feeding and/or use of swallowing compensations?” 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).
