Decision Making in Adult Dysphagia

It is easy for clinicians in busy medical environments to evaluate swallowing one time, and from one perspective. Sometimes this evaluation is a clinical exam. Sometimes it involves nasoendoscopy. Often the tool of choice is videofluoroscopy. Regardless, 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. This web workshop focuses on a series of case studies on swallowing problems that require more than meets the eye to understand their many dimensions.

This web workshop includes recorded lectures, interactive exercises, video clips, additional resources, and an exam.
