Course Content: New instrumental and behavioral interventions for persons with dysphagia have emerged over the past eight years since the last Charleston Swallowing Conference held in 2005. In October 2013 another Charleston Conference was held, bringing together the leaders in the field of dysphagia management. A select group of speakers have recorded the topics they presented at the 2013 Charleston Swallowing Conference for this clinically relevant home study course. Participants will learn evidence–based dysphagia interventions that will influence and shape best practice in the coming years.  

Topics:

  • Management of Medically Fragile and Frail Elderly Patients
  • Integration of Respiration and Deglutition: Function and Disorders
  • Management of the Tracheostomized and Ventilated Patient
  • Using Sensory Stimulation To Assist Swallow Rehabilitation
  • Relevance of Lab Values and Medications in Dysphagia Management
  • Motor Learning and Skill Maintenance
  • From Evidence to Clinical Practice
  • Ethical Decision-Making Related to Diets and Tube Feedings
  • Sensorimotor Behavior and Learning and Its Relevance to Rehabilitation and Treatment 

Content Note: This home study course includes select topics from the 2013 Charleston Swallowing Conference. Not all topics presented at Charleston were selected for inclusion in this online course. The Trach/Vent session was live recorded at Charleston. The remaining sessions included above were re-recorded after Charleston specifically for this online course.  Offered for 1.25 CEUs – 12.5 contact hours. 

This course includes the material of eCourse #e101: Relevance of Lab Values and Medications in Dysphagia Management.

Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.

Course Format: Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout. Exception: the Trach/Vent session was recorded live at Charleston.

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.

"The discussion on using sensory stimulation to assist with swallowing rehab was most beneficial." - M.V., 7/29/2016

"I found all of it beneficial, but especially the sensory information, exercise information, and trach/vent information. I liked that there was a good mix of technical medical information and decision-making information. More pediatric information might have been nice, but overall it was a very good course." - S.M., 7/19/2016

"I liked the good applications to real life situations." - J.S., 7/14/2016

"All of the content of this course is beneficial to my practice. The information on feeding tubes will probably inform my practice the most. While I would have loved to have attended in person, I enjoyed the ability to still attend via ecourse. (It allowed me to gain from the conference even though I could not be there.) I also really appreciated the strength and variety of the speakers." - J.H., 5/24/2016

"I found 3 speakers topics to be especially beneficial and have already taken the information presented into consideration during in my daily practice. 1. Paula Sullivan- Dysphagia Management in the Medically Fragile and Frail Elder in Institutional settings. 2. Christy Ludlow- Using Sensory Stimulation to assist with Swallowing Rehabilitation. 3. James Coyle- Medical Tests and What They Mean. All 3 of these topics have provided much conversation and direction amongst my colleagues in our current practice." - J.H., 5/23/2016

"I really appreciated the explanation of chest imaging and the information about advanced dementia and feeding." - A.K., 4/27/2016

"It was VERY informative on many different levels! It went in depth in so many areas of swallowing function that I will definitely use in my practice on a daily basis! Having been out in the field for 14 years it is difficult at times to find courses that I feel provide me with further education to challenge my thinking in my practice. I love to find courses like this that I feel make me a better clinician. Thank you!" - H.G., 4/13/2016
