Target Audience:
Speech Language Pathologist

Contact Hours: 2

Course Description:
Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES, EStim) in dysphagia is a controversial topic in the field of speech language pathology. Speech therapists currently use Estim devices in the clinical setting to assist patients with swallowing disorders. However, there are both benefits and risks associated with the use of these devices in swallowing therapy. Furthermore, how much training is necessary for therapists to be considered competent in using this modality and to ensure safety for the patients?

This program provides information on how to determine if Estim is something that the speech therapist wants to add to their therapy tool box. Research related to advantages and disadvantages and case samples are provided so participants are able to understand how this treatment modality can impact their treatment sessions.

Course Goals:
This course is intended to instruct the professional on how to determine if Estim is something that the speech therapist wants to add to their therapy tool box

Professional Objectives:
At the end of this course the participant will be able to:
• Identify EStim and how to determine if it is safe to use with swallowing patients
• Recall how the swallowing process can be negatively impacted.
• Explain how EStim can impact swallowing patients
• Identify positive and negative research regarding EStim and dysphagia therapy.
• Recognize the necessary components of therapy documentation and billing for EStim with swallowing patients.
• Recall the precautions and contraindications of EStim with swallowing

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
