Course/Activity Information

This learning program contains five self-paced learning modules in dysphagia rehabilitation. Topics include:

  1. General principles of dysphagia rehabilitation
  2. Navigating the C’s: Clinical, client and context challenges in dysphagia rehabilitation
  3. Dysphagia rehabilitation in critical care: Advances in clinical practice
  4. The role of pharyngeal high-resolution manometry in swallowing rehabilitation
  5. Technology enhanced dysphagia services – current practices and future opportunities
