Introduction to MBSImP™ – A Standardized Protocol for Assessment of Swallowing Impairment

# e001   Introduction to MBSImP™ – A Standardized Protocol for Assessment of Swallowing Impairment

by Bonnie Martin-Harris, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S, ASHA Fellow

0.6 CEUs

$ 124.00

__________________________________________

Learn an evidence-based, standardized approach 
for 
assessment of swallowing impairment.
__________________________________________



This online course provides a comprehensive introduction to MBSImP™ or Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile. Participants will learn an evidence-based, standardized approach toward the MBS study, including clinical training, administration of the study, interpretation of impairment, and reporting of results — each aspect standardized.

Learn how an assessment based on specific physiologic impairment, rather than a symptom-based assessment, better enables the clinician to link MBS study results to clinical action through targeted therapy. This course serves as an excellent preparatory course for those SLPs planning to go on to enroll in the MBSImP™ Standardized Training and Reliability Testing (course #e01). 

Specifically, this MBSImP™ introduction course features seven sessions:

  • Standardizing the MBS Study (1:07:12)
  • The 17 Physiologic Components Assessed via MBSImP™ (41:33)
  • Standardizing Interpretation of Impairment Part I (1:31:14)
  • Standardizing Interpretation of Impairment Part II (1:22:08)
  • Overall Impression (OI) Scoring – Participant Practice (33:36)
  • Standardizing Patient Assessment Reports (45:18)
  • References (1:33)

Content Disclosure: This online CE course exclusively focuses on the MBSImP™ for swallow
impairment assessment.  Other assessment protocols will not be included in this course.


Course note: This introduction course is not a certification course and is not a required prerequisite prior to enrolling in the MBSImP™ Standardized Training and Reliability Testing.  Those wishing to achieve "Registered MBSImP Clinician" status will need to successfully complete the MBSImP™ Standardized Training and Reliability Testing offered via course #e01

$100 Discount: Participants of this introduction course will receive a $100 tuition credit toward the MBSImP™ Standardized Training and Reliability Testing. Those wishing to move directly into the MBSImP™ Standardized Training and Reliability Testing may do so here.  


Course Format:  Video. Features a video lecture presentation with downloadable handout.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Conduct and advocate for a standardized, valid, and reliable approach to MBS assessment.
  2. Discuss the implications on patient care related to the lack of standardization. 
  3. Identify 17 physiologic components of swallowing function.
  4. Differentiate normal function from impairment across 17 physiologic components of the swallowing mechanism.
  5. Communicate levels of swallowing impairment in a manner that is evidence-based and objective. 
  6. Discuss radiation exposure and pulse rate related to the MBS Study. 
  7. Profile swallow impairment by applying MBSImP™ Overall Impression Scores. 

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post-test in order to 
receive a certificate of completion.

An activity’s eligibility for CEEs does not imply SAC’s endorsement of its content or any associated products or procedures.

Content Disclosure: This online CE course exclusively focuses on the MBSImP for swallow impairment assessment.  Other assessment protocols will not be included in this course.

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses. For the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.

ASHA CE Registry:  During the enrollment process, if you select to receive ASHA credit for this course and if you provide your ASHA number, NSS will automatically submit your CEU information to the ASHA CE Registry after successful course completion (80% on post test). This submission happens once per month, during the first week of the month. For example, if you complete your course on November 7th, NSS will submit all November online course CEUs to ASHA during the first week of December. When ASHA inputs the information into their database, they will mark the course as completed on the last day of the month in which it was completed, so November 30th using this example. The certificate of completion available for you to print immediately, however, will reflect the actual completion date, November 7th in this example. Due to ASHA processing procedures please allow 2-3 weeks, from the submission date, for the course to appear on your ASHA transcript.

"The step-by-step explanation of each component and what distinguishes one score from another was incredibly helpful." - V.G., 9/5/2016

"I'm planning on completing the MBSImP training, and therefore, this training really solidified the information for the MBSImP. I liked the explanation of the scoring criteria for each of the 17 components. I enjoyed the course." - I.I., 8/21/2016

I really appreciated the scoring guidelines for each component - there are some components that I will now be paying more attention to, or looking at differently." - E.S., 8/13/2016

"It was an excellent course! The swallow impairment descriptions, loads of examples, and practice scoring were all very beneficial!" - B.R., 8/1/2016

"I liked the animation and fluoro side by side demonstrations." - B.Z., 7/23/2016

"It was a very thorough course. The breakdown of normal and abnormal function by physiological compenent was especially helpful." - H.S., 7/18/2016

"I appreciate being able to continue where I left in the videos, as well as return to previous content and review video content. It is also helpful to have written text for reference. Thank you for all of your work. Exactly what we needed." - T.J., 6/27/2016

"Viewing the swallows individually with the classification being explained was most beneficial." - S.C., 6/26/2016

"The step by step breakdown of each swallow component allowed me to think about each area of possible impairment and how I can customize my treatment for my patients. I enjoyed the combination of seeing the speaker and viewing the slides & animations, which made it more interactive." - S.H., 6/19/2016

"I liked the videos, handouts, pace of the course, and the fact that the course doesn't expire and have unlimited time to finish it. This is a very important factor for very busy clinicians like myself with time constraints." - J.D., 6/13/2016

"This was extremely helpful for me to increase my competency in identifying the physiologic causes behind the oropharyngeal dysphagia I assess and treat every day." - J.P., 5/28/2016

"Breaking down the assessment and reviewing component by component was very helpful. I liked what BMH said about the rational behind the development of MBSImP. This is a much needed training for clinicians." - R.L., 5/5/2016

"I appreciated being provided with exact anatomical landmarks and timing cues to allow for better assessment of swallow function." - N.R., 4/25/2016

"Dr. Martin Harris is extremely knowledgeable and practical. I appreciate that she brings a therapist approach not just as a researcher." - C.L., 2/23/2016

"I liked the mode of presentation adn how clear the presenter was. The standardization of scoring of components of the swallow was the most beneficial." - B.G., 2/20/16

"Looking at the 17 components in an organized way was very useful. It changes how I approach my interpretation of a swallow study. I liked the graphics and examples." - B.P., 2/12/2016
