Presenter(s): Ed M Bice, MEd, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: Ethics is an often-forgotten portion of evidence-based practice. Although not a distinct part of the triad, ethics play an important role in every decision. This session provides practical applications of the tenets of the ASHA Code of Ethics, with focus on the concept of competence.
Presenter(s): Kellyn Dailey Hall, PhD, CCC-SLP; Leslie W Johnson, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session explores how health disparities impact dysphagia management and associated outcomes. The speakers present tools and strategies SLPs can use to improve their cultural responsiveness and adopt an inclusive mindset in their approach to patient-centered care for patients with dysphagia.
Presenter(s): Kendrea Layne Garand, PhD, CScD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S, CBIS, CCRE
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.15
Summary: This session explores the strengths and limitations for interpreting clinical swallow examination (CSE) results, including implications for dysphagia management in adult populations across clinical settings. The speaker contrasts CSEs with instrumental swallow examinations and shares resources to maximize clinical usefulness of the clinical swallow exam.
Presenter(s): Rinki Varindani Desai, MS, CCC-SLP, CBIS, CDP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session shares preferred practices for selecting, conducting, and interpreting instrumental swallow exams. The speaker discusses strengths and limitations of different instrumental exams, along with clinical applications to promote more accurate dysphagia diagnosis, targeted treatment planning, and positive patient outcomes. The session includes tips for critical thinking and current evidence supporting the use of instrumental exams to optimize the safety and quality of life of those living with swallowing disorders.

Summary: This session reviews what it means for a measure to be objective, subjective, and/or valid and applies these concepts to fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES). The presenters also discuss other, equally important, criteria to consider when evaluating a patient for dysphagia: accuracy, meaningfulness, and relevancy.
Presenter(s): Bonnie J Martin-Harris, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session introduces technological, procedural, and analysis factors that optimize objectivity and reproducibility of clinically valid videofluoroscopic measurements made from modified barium swallow (MBS) studies. The speaker addresses the importance and preferred practices for learning, training, and measurement skill calibration and demonstrates positive and negative influences of clinical bias on VFSS measurement and interpretation.
Presenter(s): Catriona M Steele, PhD, CCC-SLP
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: SLPs who work with people with dysphagia face the challenge of identifying food textures and liquid consistencies that will optimize swallowing safety and efficiency while minimizing negative consequences on quality of life and nutrition. This session features case-based opportunities to practice the skills involved in determining when and how texture modification can be used to improve swallowing outcomes.
Presenter(s): Giselle D Carnaby, MPH, PhD
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: The application of multiple swallow maneuvers is often a mainstay of dysphagia intervention, but the role of the maneuver and its effect on swallow rehabilitation outcomes are not always clear. This session explores swallowing intervention beyond the application of maneuvers and reviews the role of motor learning strategies in maximizing outcomes for patients.
Presenter(s): Alicia Kim Vose, PhD, CCC-SLP

Summary: Impairments in laryngeal vestibule closure (LVC) are a major cause of aspiration during swallowing. Accurately identifying LVC impairment is a priority in dysphagia management as aspiration can occur if LVC is absent or delayed, or duration is reduced. However, this mechanism is often overlooked and underreported in the evaluation of swallowing and in swallowing research. This session discusses methods for incorporating LVC as a primary outcome measure in dysphagia diagnosis and management to increase diagnostic accuracy and optimize dysphagia management.
Presenter(s): Luis F Riquelme, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: Modifying diet consistencies is one of the more common approaches to dysphagia care. However, much controversy remains regarding how SLPs tackle decision-making and about the actual modification and measurement of liquids and foods in terms of nutrition and safety as primary goals of dysphagia treatment. This session addresses the complexities in both processes, with a focus on achieving the best outcomes for each patient.
