Management of Dysphagia: in Search of the Latest Evidence
November 18 @ 8:30 am - 4:15 pm
This one-day workshop will address relevant topics on assessment, treatment and management of persons with dysphagia. Current evidence on the aging swallow, aspiration and related etiologies will be presented. Decision-making will be highlighted throughout. Discussions will be interactive and focus on aspects that impact the everyday practice of the speech- language pathologist in all settings; from acute to long- term care, from rehabilitation to residential settings. The audience will leave with a greater understanding of controversial and practice issues, and be ready to incorporate new or updated knowledge on Monday.
