About this item

The first module in the series "Current topics in dysphagia rehabilitation" learning program.

Course/Activity Information

In Module 1, learners will be encouraged to consider how key principles and considerations can be used to help optimise rehabilitation outcomes.

Upon successful completion of this module, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the key principles of neuroplasticity and how these relate to dysphagia rehabilitation.
  • Discuss rehabilitation considerations: motor versus sensory rehabilitation, skill versus strength training, using biofeedback.
  • Identify key domains for monitoring outcomes.

The program authors recorded a Q&A panel session answering questions submitted by members after completing the self-paced materials. A recording of the panel is also included.
