About the event

Course Overview

During four-hour course participants will engage in small group activities, discussion, lecture and case studies with documentation practice as they identify the SLP role in the PDPM process, discuss assessment and treatments for dysphagia, as well as learn ways to handle end of life discussions. Assessment tools will include well known tests such as the Eat-10 and Yale Swallow Protocol, as well as newer tests such as the Test of Masticating and Swallowing Solids (TOMASS). Interventions will include use of respiratory muscle strength training as well as evidenced-based exercises such as chin tuck against resistance. Participants will receive training in development of long-term care programs including identification of residents, the importance of continued focus on post-COVID-19 residents, goal setting and use of a team approach to care. Finally, participants will learn how to conduct and document skilled maintenance programs.
