Contemporary Issues in Adult Health Care and Swallowing

This course bundle includes five recorded sessions from ASHA’s 2017 Health Care Connect conference, held in July in New Orleans, Louisiana. These sessions explore various issues related to assessment and intervention for swallowing disorders and implications for adult health care more broadly.

The five sessions in this course bundle are:

  • Screening and Assessment Considerations in the ICU, by James Coyle, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
  • Dysphagia Following Treatment for Head and Neck Cancer, by Donna Lundy, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
  • Using the Penetration-Aspiration Scale to Interpret Videofluoroscopic Swallowing Studies, by James Coyle, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S

  • Keeping Pace With Changing Health Care: The Intersection of SLP and Palliative Care, by Meredith Oakey Ashford, MS, CCC-SLP, and Sumi Misra, MD, MPH, CMD

  • Integrate monitored patient data with observed/reported changes in patient function and performance during the assessment process
  • Identify and implement specific exercises for targeted intervention for dysphagia following treatment for head and neck cancer
