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).
