Medical SLP Decision-Making: Pulmonary & Digestive Considerations
7:30 AM - 3:30 PM

Sunnehanna Country Club

Presented by:  James Coyle, PhD, CCC-SLP, BRS-S
This program will provide an educational opportunity for speech pathologists and other interested health care professionals. The demand for experienced, skilled, and decisive practitioners of Medical Speech Language Pathology has grown exponentially in the past decade. This growth has been fueled by the need to control hospital-acquired infections and reduce life-shortening adverse events associated with dysphagia. Unfortunately, graduate academic and clinical education rarely sets time aside to prepare clinicians to fully understand the non-speech functions of the respiratory system or the physiological underpinnings of pulmonary diseases in adults. Another area of knowledge the medical SLP must gain during practice, relates to the digestive portion of the aerodigestive tract. Dysphagia caused by esophageal motility or other conditions can mask or mimic oropharnygeal dysphagia and lead the diagnostician in the wrong direction. This course will explore the respiratory system’s functions, anatomy and physiology, how pulmonary diseases affect breathing and swallowing, the course and progression of common pulmonary diseases in adults, how to identify risk factors for dysphagia-related adverse outcomes, review esophageal structure and function, common esophageal structural and physiologic disorders and their relationship dysphagia symptomatology, and outline methods of assessment of esophageal disorders.

This program has been approved for six (6) continuing education credits from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association for continuing education contact hours for speech pathologists.
Participants must attend the entire program to receive credit.
