Feeding Tubes in Adults With Advanced Illness: Use, Overuse, and the SLP’s Role (Live Webinar)
9/20/2016
Format(s): Live Webinar, Live Webinar (Group)
CEUs: CEU approval in process
2.0
Studies on feeding tubes in individuals with advanced illness have raised doubts about the long-term benefit and potential overuse of feeding tubes. SLPs are often asked to offer recommendations about a person’s ability to eat and drink by mouth but may be concerned that restrictions on oral intake could lead to the use of feeding tubes. The boundaries of professional roles are often blurred, further complicating the issue. This course will address the clinical research surrounding the use of feeding tubes, offer evidence-based practice guidelines, and provide solutions to the challenges facing SLPs with regards to feeding tube overuse.

Management of Communication and Swallowing Impairments Related to Artificial Airways
Format(s): Streaming Video
CEUs: 0.3
3.0
Endotracheal tubes, tracheostomy tubes, and ventilator dependency can have adverse effects on communication and swallowing. SLPs who take the lead role in remediating these impairments need to have the knowledge and skills to provide appropriate, safe, and evidence-based interventions. This streaming video course is designed for the SLP who has an interest in post-extubation dysphagia and in communication and swallowing challenges associated with tracheostomy tubes and ventilator dependency. The course will review the literature and present a “how-to” guide for managing these medically complex patients. Medical SLPs will walk away with strategies to best manage their patients who are experiencing complications due to artificial airways.

Adult Swallowing Safety: Impact of Changes to Feeding and Swallowing Processes
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.3
3.0
SLPs employ many strategies when working with adults to address feeding and swallowing disorders. From evaluation through treatment, SLPs must consider the impact of alterations to foods, liquids, positioning, and more on swallowing efficiency and safety. This journal self-study investigates what impact the addition of barium to a bolus during a videofluoroscopic swallowing study has on swallowing behaviors; exactly what happens to the swallowing process when the chin-down posture is employed as a compensatory strategy; and how assisted feeding may affect swallowing. Clinicians will come away with a much better explanation of the physiological and functional changes that occur when they make bolus, head position, or feeding situation changes. The articles make specific recommendations about the appropriateness of the chin-down posture for specific types of patients, depending on the difficulties they are having during the swallow. Practical suggestions also are made for how to address some of the problems that are introduced by feeding assistance.

Feeding Tubes in Adults With Advanced Illness: Use, Overuse, and the SLP’s Role (On Demand Webinar)
Format(s): On Demand Webinar, On Demand Webinar (Group)
CEUs: CEU approval in process
2.0
SLPs’ assessments and recommendations about a person’s inability to eat and drink by mouth can lead to the use of a percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) tube for feeding. But studies on PEG tubes have raised doubts about their long-term benefit as well as concerns about their overuse for providing artificial enteral nutrition. This course presents evidence-based information about dysphagia, aspiration, aspiration pneumonia, nutrition support, and the role of PEG tubes in caring for cognitively impaired elders. In addition to using this information to manage care for cognitively impaired patients, practitioners can extrapolate to other patient groups, such as stroke patients, for which the evidence base is inadequate.

Using Measurement Tools in Assessment and Treatment of Dysphagia
Format(s): Journal (Online)
CEUs: 0.45
4.5
Accurate and consistent measurement during the assessment and treatment of feeding and swallowing disorders is necessary to ensure that clinical decisions best meet patient needs. This journal self-study presents five articles that describe recent research related to the measurement of eating and swallowing behaviors and tools. For those interested in pediatrics, this product addresses the development of a tool to more accurately assess pediatric behavioral feeding issues as well as a description of how chewing develops in young children. For those working with adults, this self-study includes a tutorial on the use of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assess and treat swallowing disorders as well as research on how the perceived taste of a bolus influences swallowing behaviors. A fifth article discusses how the line spread test can be used as a visual tool to quickly and more accurately determine liquid thickness.

Swallowing and Neurodegenerative Disease
Format(s): Audio CD and Manual, Streaming Audio
CEUs: 0.2

Research confirms that neuroplasticity makes it possible to treat swallowing deficits behaviorally, even in persons with neurodegenerative disease. But treatment must be focused in order to yield positive or therapeutic results. This program reveals how to gain that focus. Review an array of strengthening and skill-building rehabilitation approaches and compensations that provide options for the majority of such patients. The goal is to equip you with concepts and tools to treat adults with neurodegenerative disease and to advocate effectively on their behalf.

It is easy for clinicians in busy medical environments to evaluate swallowing one time, and from one perspective. Patients with multidimensional problems require more than one approach to assessment, and usually more than one profession. But inter- and intraprofessional agreement on swallow physiology and management can be a daunting challenge.
