Objectives

  • At the completion of the course participants should be able to systematically observe & score individual & unique behaviors associated with normal or abnormal oropharyngeal swallowing events as captured using an endoscopic swallow procedure.
  • At the completion of this course participants should be able to analyze the significance of endoscopically-observed behaviors during an abnormal oropharyngeal swallowing event.
  • At the completion of the course participants should be able to determine underlying biomechanical/sensory causes of abnormal oropharyngeal swallowing behaviors, which potentially determine directions for intervention and remediation.
  • At the completion of the course participants should be able to relate observed abnormal swallowing behaviors & their biomechanical/sensory causes to underlying primary medical conditions.
  • At the completion of the course participants should be able to write a concise & clear report incorporating endoscopic observations of normal & abnormal swallowing events, their significance & underlying causes relative to the primary medical diagnoses, & possible intervention approaches.
