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.

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).
