Swallowing Guidelines - Book Cover


This book and CD-ROM resource is the simple answer to a busy therapist's problem. It enables the therapist to meet their professional responsibility to inform patients and carers of relevant dysphagia instructions by designing contemporaneous written information, advice and therapy. Using an interactive CD-ROM, Swallowing Guidelines allow you to produce multiple individualised programmes that may be emailed or posted to the individuals, their carers or other professionals in any location. The programme sheets offer comprehensive advice covering all aspects of dysphagia care in clear unambiguous language. All that the therapist needs to do is highlight the sections pertinent to their patient and the programme is created. As the individual's status changes, the programme can be quickly amended to reflect their changing needs. The CD-ROM and accompanying template ensures that individualised programmes are comprehensive and produced efficiently thus maximising the use of clinical and administrative time. Elizabeth Boaden: Principal Speech & Language Therapist of Adult Service, teaches dysphagia at an undergraduate and post-graduate level to speech language therapists and nurses. She is currently studying for a PhD at the University of Central Lancashire on the efficacy of training pre-registration nurses to perform swallow screening. Jo Walker: Specialist Speech & Language Therapist, works in acquired neurology at Chorley South Ribble PCT. She also provides a Speech Language service for the Community Acquired Brain Injury Rehab Team and is currently seconded to the Cumbria and Lancashire Workforce Development Confederation, working on an educational project in acquired brain injury.
