Clinicians often conduct instrumental evaluations of swallowing for patients who have been treated for head and neck cancer, and making decisions regarding oral vs. non-oral nutrition and specific diet type can be challenging. This webinar will discuss how to make judicious decisions concerning eating and diet, and what variables to incorporate into the decision-making process with this population.
You will be able to:
- identify the types of oropharyngeal swallowing impairments that are common in head and neck cancer patients
- discuss the variables to consider when making decisions regarding PO/NPO and specific diet
