Clinical Swallow Evaluation:  The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly  (.2 ASHA CEUs; 2.0 Maryland Contact Hours)
Natalie Russell, Sr. Speech-Language-Pathologist, MedStar Union Memorial Hospital

This webinar will analyze traditional methods and techniques used during the clinical swallow evaluation.  Current research on various topics in dysphagia and surprising statistics will be reviewed with the goal of shedding light on outdated practices and encouraging use of evidence-based practice.  Learner Outcomes: The participant will identify non-evidence based practices within the traditional clinical swallow evaluation; participants will be able to list at least three assessment methods supported by evidence-based practice; participants will be able to discuss research on hot topic areas, such as high-flow oxygen via nasal cannula, post-extubation dysphagia, cervical auscultation, the impact of NG/OG tubes, and medication recommendations.  

This program is offered for .2 CEUs (Intermediate level, professional area).  ASHA CE Provider approval does not imply endorsement of course content, specific products, or clinical procedures.
