Perspectives on Dysphagia and Implications for Treatment

This course includes three recorded sessions from ASHA’s 2018 Health Care Connect conference, held in July in Baltimore, Maryland. These sessions explore various perspectives on dysphagia, including viewing abnormal swallowing through a physiological lens, muscle strengthening exercise as a part of dysphagia treatment, and the key role of oral health and oral care protocols. Each of the sessions also presents practical clinical implications of these perspectives for dysphagia treatment.

The three sessions are: 

  • The Physiology Behind Abnormal Swallowing, by Ianessa Humbert, PhD, CCCSLP (92 minutes)
  • Muscle Strengthening Approaches to Dysphagia Rehabilitation, by Nicole Rogus-Pulia, PhD, CCC-SLP (120 minutes)
  • Oral Care: Optimizing Outcomes for Patients With Dysphagia, by Nicole Rogus-Pulia, PhD, CCC-SLP (83 minutes)

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • provide a physiological rationale for specific swallowing treatments to target each impaired swallowing event
  • describe key components necessary to achieve maximal effects of muscle strength training as part of dysphagia treatment
  • assess the efficacy of various oral care protocols in patients with dysphagia and challenges associated with protocol implementation
