Course Description

MDTP is a systematic exercise-based approach to dysphagia therapy in adults.  Rather than a specific technique, MDTP is a framework from which to provide individualized therapy to adult patients.  This one-day intermediate course introduces participants to the conceptual basis of MDTP, provides the results of initial clinical studies documenting functional and physiologic benefits from MDTP intervention, describes in detail the components of MDTP, and provides step by step instruction for the evaluation and treatment of patients receiving the MDTP approach.

 

The content of this seminar is not available to students

 

 

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to...

  1. Describe the components of MDTP therapy and differentiate this approach from more traditional therapy.

  2. Describe current clinical research supporting MDTP therapy.

  3. Explain how MDTP uses exercise principles to improve swallow function.

  4. Explain physiologic changes in swallowing that may result from various foods/liquids.

  5. Use specific clinical tools in the evaluation of patients for participation in MDTP therapy.

  6. Conduct MDTP therapy sessions and monitor patient progress and outcome.
