Interpretation of Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies of ADULTS

# e09   Interpretation of Videofluoroscopic Swallow Studies of ADULTS

by Jeri Logemann, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, BCS-S

0.5 CEUs

$ 89.00

Dysphagia practice today by the SLP is based on the principles taught in this course.  Developed by Jeri Logemann, PhD, this course aims to improve the ability of the dysphagia clinician to diagnose and plan treatment interventions for oropharyngeal dysphagia in adults though videofluoroscopy.  Included are 25 videofluoroscopic swallow studies of various swallowing disorders in adults. Participants will learn to determine the cause(s) of swallow abnormalities and plan treatment strategies that address the cause(s) of abnormal swallow function. A downloadable handout discusses each swallow study, including the rationale for the diagnosis and treatment planning recommendations. A formal written report is also included for each swallow study. Offered for 0.5 ASHA CEUs – 5 contact hours. 

Participants will learn to:

  • Interpret MBS studies in adults.
  • Link symptoms of dysphagia with specific swallowing disorders.
  • Improve patient outcomes and patient satisfaction through more accurate diagnostic skills.
  • Plan treatment programs based on swallow physiology and on effects of treatment introduced during the swallow study rather than only on signs and symptoms of dysphagia.
  • Improve report-writing skills.
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:  Videofluorographic swallow studies streamed online with downloadable handout discussing each swallow study. This course requires that you have Adobe's Flash Player installed. Click here to download the Flash Player.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  • Identify anatomic abnormalities that contribute or cause swallowing disorders.
  • Identify physiologic abnormalities that cause swallowing disorders.
  • State intervention strategies related to specific swallowing disorders that have been shown effective in preventing aspiration, dehydration or malnutrition.
  • State intervention strategies related to anatomic abnormalities that cause or contribute to abnormal swallowing behavior.

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

Offered for 5 CEEs. Northern Speech Services’ continuing education activities are eligible for Speech-Language and Audiology Canada (SAC) Continuing Education Equivalents (CEEs) in speech-language pathology. An activity’s eligibility for CEEs does not imply SAC’s endorsement of its content or any associated products or procedures.

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 the most current information, we suggest that you contact your licensing board or agency to verify acceptance policies and/or any credit limits related to home-study courses prior to registering for this course.

ASHA CE Registry:  During the enrollment process, if you select to receive ASHA credit for this course and if you provide your ASHA number, NSS will automatically submit your CEU information to the ASHA CE Registry after successful course completion (80% on post test).

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. Due to ASHA processing procedures please allow 2-3 weeks, from the submission date, for the course to appear on your ASHA transcript.
