Selecting a Dysphagic Patient's Diet

#e35 Selecting a Dysphagic Patient's Diet

by Jeri Logemann, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, BCS-S

.1 CEUs

$24.00

One of the most important decisions the clinician makes when caring for a patient with dysphagia is the nature of the patient's diet—oral or non-oral, and if oral, what type of oral intake. While it is clear that usually each patient exhibits safer swallows on one or more food viscosities, identifying the best viscosities for each patient can be a challenge. This online course discusses the factors to be considered in making the diet recommendations. Offered for 0.1 ASHA CEU – 1 contact hour. 

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: Text.

At e-course conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify critical variables in deciding on best diet for a patient.
  2. Identify best diet for their dysphagic patients.
  3. Interact more effectively with the dysphagic patient and caregiver regarding diet changes.

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

Jeri A. Logemann, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S, was the Ralph and Jean Sundin Professor of Communication Sciences and Disorders in the Northwestern University School of Communication from 1995 until her death in 2014. She received all of her degrees at Northwestern and had taught and conducted research at Northwestern since 1978.

Dr. Logemann was a pioneer and leader in the study of dysphagia.

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.
