Critical Care: Careful Decision-Making for Dysphagia (HC13)

Saturday, July 21
9:15 AM - 10:45 AM
Location: Room 318-320
CE: 0.15 ASHA CEUs/1.5 PDHs

This session is eligible for Pennsylvania Act 48 professional education hours.

Patients who are critically ill are medically complex and thus require medically complex solutions, but that does not mean that intervention needs to be complex. Employing a careful, systematic approach to dysphagia screening, assessment, and treatment in this patient population can help simplify medical management. This session will discuss evidence- and practice-based approaches for effective diagnosis and treatment as well as tools to implement a successful swallow screening/referral program in the ICU.
