Restorative Rehabilitation Dining Programs: Successful Development & Implementation

# e100   Restorative Rehabilitation Dining Programs: Successful Development & Implementation

by Laura Roberts, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S

0.2 CEUs

$ 39.00

This online course addresses protocols, logistics, goals and collaborative factors related to implementing a restorative rehabilitation dining program in your facility. Individual therapy provided in a therapy room is an appropriate environment to teach swallowing techniques such as maneuvers, positioning, adaptive equipment, sensory stimulation, and/or memory strategies to improve swallowing safety and efficiency. A real mealtime experience, however, is necessary to determine if these skills are being generalized safely to the dining environment as a client eats with fellow residents or family members.

Participants will learn to identify ideal patient candidates for rehabilitation dining programs, and learn the necessary steps to successfully implement rehab dining programs.  Presented will be providing co-treatments with other rehab dining team members, policies and procedures related to rehab dining programs, how to document these important services, and how to safely advance diet consistencies. Added benefits of increased socialization and counseling opportunities will be discussed. Offered for 0.2 ASHA CEUs – 2 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:  Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout.

  • Summarize goals of a typical restorative rehabilitation dining program.

  • Explain the function of interdisciplinary co-treatment during rehabilitation dining programs.

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.

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.
