Presented by Joseph Murray, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, BRS-S
Date: October 27, 2016
Time: 9:00am to 4:00pm
Location: Cineplex Park Lane - Auditorium 3 (Park Lane Mall - 5657 Spring Garden Road, Halifax, NS)
This session will focus on improving the accuracy and reliability of a practicing clinician's interpretation of instrumental swallowing assessments. The course will include a review of the popular assessment techniques with particular focu on the videofluoroscopic assessment of swallowing. During this sssion the clinician will review tape recorded segments of swalling studies and will be able to provide anonymous responses to the presenter's stimulus questions by using hand held keypads that communicate with the presenter's computer. This technique allows candid responses from the audience members and allows the attendee to compare their answers to other attendees and to expert opinion that have been rendered in teh past. This session is intended to calibrate co-workers who use the videofluoroscopic instrumen in their site by introducing a common set of operational definitions and shared lexicon.
