Description

My patient is aspirating!  Will it lead to pneumonia? Current evidence base tells us illness is not inevitable in aspirating clients.  This course will allow participants to identify risk factors for aspiration pneumonia and to address those that the treatment team can modify.  The evidence to support dietary interventions, oral hygiene, postural interventions and other techniques will be discussed to provide the participant with the most up-to-date tools to reduce aspiration-related illnesses in their clients.
