Summary: SLPs are increasingly involved in the care of patients with head and neck cancer. While preventative dysphagia services are accepted as standard of care, many clinicians don't have the background in this population to determine how to best evaluate and treat patients prior to radiation. This on demand webinar (available beginning December 16, 2022) covers what clinicians need to know to provide prehabilitative care-from justification to assessment to treatment to working within the multidisciplinary cancer care team.
Presenter(s): Ashwini M. Namasivayam-MacDonald, PhD, CCC-SLP, SLP(C)

Summary: This on demand webinar focuses on identification and management of dysphagia in people with dementia, with discussion of current research on dysphagia assessment, intervention, and caregiver burden. The webinar presents preferred practices for maximizing quality of life for this patient population.

Summary: Behavioral interventions that provide a calibrated mode for strengthening inspiratory and expiratory muscles are limited and often non-evidence-based. This on demand webinar discusses the evidence base for respiratory muscle strength training (RMST) devices and shares the assessment and treatment protocols necessary for valid implementation of respiratory muscle strength training protocols. The course will be useful for SLPs working in health care settings treating acute and chronic conditions that impact the functions of breathing, coughing, swallowing, and vocalizing that result from skeletal muscle weakness.

Summary: This on demand webinar addresses the clinical utility of a clinical swallow examination (CSE) for individuals with suspected swallowing impairment. The speaker discusses the power of the CSE, which comes from employing a systematic assessment to enhance clinical decision-making. The webinar dives into the critical components for a multidimensional CSE applicable across patient populations and settings.

Summary: The use of telepractice for dysphagia management has increased dramatically due to the challenges of in-person practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. In this on demand webinar, the presenter will share step-by-step, evidence-based guidelines for the safe and reliable use of telehealth for dysphagia management in both pediatric and adult patients. The speaker will discuss legal safeguards, privacy and confidentiality considerations, technology infrastructure, clinician training and skills, facilitator training, and patient candidacy considerations. The webinar will include video case examples, problem-solving activities, and demonstrations of telepractice adaptations for clinical (bedside) swallowing evaluations and treatment sessions. During the webinar, the speaker will guide participants in the creation of a practical roadmap to implement telepractice with their patients with dysphagia.

Summary: Due to the rapidly changing climate in dysphagia management, adhering to recent changes in billing and documentation standards and procedures can be challenging for SLPs. In this on demand webinar, speakers will identify common pitfalls and discuss strategies to meet expectations, so clinicians can avoid unethical decisions, prevent dings, and maximize local coverage for dysphagia reimbursement. The speakers will also illustrate how advocating for accurate representation in SLP billing and documentation supports clinician competency and patient outcomes. This webinar – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 13: Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia).

Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: This webinar explores texture modifications for foods and liquids and their effects on swallow biomechanics and quality of life for adults with dysphagia. Using clinical scenarios and case studies, presenter Luis Riquelme discusses working with patients to achieve the optimal diet texture modifications to maximize outcomes, including patient compliance and satisfaction.
Presenter(s): Eric Blicker, SLPD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: This webinar will walk SLPs through the procedures used in flexible endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES; also known as fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing) to evaluate patients with dysphagia. The course will provide a thorough explanation of the laryngeal and pharyngeal anatomy that can be viewed using FEES and guide attendees through exam interpretation.
Presenter(s): Paula Leslie, PhD, FRCSLT, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: This webinar addresses the roles and responsibilities of the SLP – especially when it comes to ethical considerations – in interprofessional management of swallowing and feeding difficulties. The SLP is one cog in a complex machine of stakeholders (including patients, their families, and other professionals) and can be the linchpin in ensuring optimal care.

Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: Clinicians often conduct instrumental evaluations of swallowing for patients who have been treated for head and neck cancer, and making decisions regarding oral vs. non-oral nutrition and specific diet type can be challenging. This webinar will discuss how to make judicious decisions concerning eating and diet, and what variables to incorporate into the decision-making process with this population.
