Course summary

If you’re a current professional whose role involves supporting individuals with dysphagia (swallowing problems) then this course will help you to streamline services for your patients and enhance the clinical excellence and cost-effectiveness of your practice.

This course is ideal for those working in a multidisciplinary team whose work supports those with dysphagia. We’ll help you to design a robust and evidence-based evaluation of your current practice in your own healthcare setting so that you’re able to implement sustained improvements and make a difference to patients’ lives.
