This seminar addresses the adult population and is designed for clinicians who conduct MBS exams, treat patients following an MBS exam, or both, in any setting along the healthcare continuum. The format includes an evidence, case-based approach to learning the implementation and interpretation of a standardized modified barium swallowing examination using the MBSImP©™. Participants will learn to execute a standardized and efficient examination that permits flexibility for safe and immediate introduction of interventions based on the nature of impaired components. Implications of the MBSImP approach on radiation safety will be presented. Performing and treating clinicians will learn to link oropharyngeal physiologic components to potential levels of disruption in sensor-motor control across patient diagnoses.
Participants will learn to detect mild to profound deviations in normal swallow function across various ages based on new evidence using the MBSImP component scoring system. The potential application for neuroprotective and neurorehabilitative exercises will be presented. The functional relationships between esophageal clearance abnormalities and oropharyngeal swallowing disorders will be discussed. The application of targeted interventions and treatment planning based on specific impairments of swallowing will be covered. Participants will receive sample reports and learn to create electronic, web-based patient reports based on MBSImP findings.
Outcome tracking within a single healthcare facility or healthcare system that supports the value of the MBS study and swallowing treatment will be demanded in a climate of healthcare reform. To that end, participants will learn to set appropriate goals and identify and track patient outcomes. Participants will also learn how de-identified MBSImP data creates opportunity for participation in multi-site clinical research and advancement of swallowing practice in the speech-language pathology community. Seminar focus is the adult population. Pediatric dysphagia will not be presented. Prerequisite: must have a degree in Speech-Language Pathology.
