Medication can have a significant impact on a client’s swallowing or communication deficit, and this webinar will give SLPs much-needed information to ensure they are considering medication effects when evaluating and treating their clients. The webinar will explore the latest evidence-based research to help SLPs recognize drug interactions and know how and when to report them to a health care team member. The presenter will discuss examples of medication interactions and recommend actions SLPs can take during assessment and treatment to ensure the best outcomes for their clients.
You will be able to:
- list research-based factors relating polypharmacy to negative clinical consequences
- identify ways to predict and monitor a client’s medications and any adverse effects
- select optimal treatment protocols to accommodate any adverse drug effects of a client’s current drug regimen
