Summary: Speech-language pathologists working in health care are faced with many challenges, including an ever-changing reimbursement and regulatory landscape and varied patient population. These challenges require ongoing education and training, as well as knowledge of evidence-based practices and appropriate roles and responsibilities. This self-study addresses issues that SLPs working with dysphagia need to consider so that they can help their patients achieve the best possible clinical outcomes. The course begins with a discussion of the role of the SLP in addressing cough and then delves into a further discussion of sensory processing and how that may affect swallowing. It continues with a detailed description of issues the SLP must consider in long-term care settings and when providing palliative care. SLPs working with individuals with dysphagia can use this information to improve services and advocate for their role in the challenging health care environment.

If not handled effectively, adversity can result in burnout, turnover, lost productivity, and poor performance.
