Aspiration Pneumonia and the Role of the SLP: Using Evidence To Determine Risks Associated With Oral Feeding

# e29   Aspiration Pneumonia and the Role of the SLP: Using Evidence To Determine Risks Associated With Oral Feeding

by James Coyle, PhD, CCC-SLP, BCS-S

0.6 CEUs

$ 99.00

This course is a must for all dysphagia clinicians.  SLPs are commonly consulted to identify the likelihood that a patient's "aspiration pneumonia" was dysphagia-related and then to intervene accordingly. SLPs are also asked to predict and mitigate risk of future dysphagia-related respiratory diseases based on assessment findings. Yet, SLPs receive little formal training in the anatomy and physiology of the respiratory system and in the differential diagnosis of the various types of pneumonia.

In this course, James Coyle, PhD, summarizes anatomy and physiology and current literature to facilitate the objective estimation of dysphagia-related pneumonia risk, and provides information on the decision-making process to determine the use of oral or non-oral nutrition. Offered for 0.6 SLP CEUs – 6 contact hours.

Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.

Course Format: Audio course (mp3 file) with downloadable handout (Run Time 06:19:40).

At audio eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss respiratory anatomy and physiology and specific types of pneumonia.
  2. State how aspiration pneumonia can be distinguished from other types of pneumonias and respiratory system diseases.
  3. List risk factors related to the development of pneumonia.
  4. Discuss how oral pathogens are related to the development of pneumonia.
  5. Discuss the role of the Speech-Language Pathologist in the prevention of dehydration.
  6. Identify patients who are good candidates for the free water protocol.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post-test in order to
receive a certificate of completion.

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses.

For example, if you complete your course on November 7th, NSS will submit all November online course CEUs to ASHA during the first week of December. When ASHA inputs the information into their database, they will mark the course as completed on the last day of the month in which it was completed, so November 30th using this example. The certificate of completion available for you to print immediately, however, will reflect the actual completion date, November 7th in this example.
