Learning Goals of this course
This course is intended for therapist working in acute settings with a Stroke Survivor population.
By the end of this course you should be able to explain the appropriate use of a dysphagia screening tool. This means that you will learn how to:
- perform screening
- understand the reason for each step in the screening process, and
- be able to suggest a plan of care consistent with the findings on the screening test.
This approximately 30-minute education session is based on Stroke Best Practice Recommendations in screening for dysphagia post stroke. The methods used to deliver the material include interactive activities, videos, a quiz and a case study.
Please note that as of this time, the course is available in French only. A translation to English is currently underway.
On behalf of the Champlain Regional Stroke Network and the Institut du savoir Montfort, we wish you a good learning experience!
