Selecting a Dysphagic Patient's Diet

#e35 Selecting a Dysphagic Patient's Diet

by Jeri Logemann, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, BRS-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.
