Description

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.

Review quote

"The book and the CD-ROM allow the practitioner to create individualized programs of care that can be updated quickly as a patient's status changes. The ability to create systematic forms which can be easily understood by the caregivers, staff, and family members make this a very unique resource. The CD-ROM is easy to use, as is the manual. It is very important in dysphagia management to have all caregivers providing consistent, systematic, and homogeneous care techniques. This book provides the avenue for that care because all of the forms one may need are collected in this one manual and CD-ROM. . This is an excellent resource manual for speech pathologists who need a way of streamlining and making the care of dysphagia patients more consistent across care providers and settings. It is an effective way to create multiple programs of care that can be posted in rooms and charts and given to patients and their caregivers. There are not many other books available today that attempt the difficult task of making dysphagia care consistent and easy to understand and follow by all caregivers." Catherine Baer Coleman, M.S. (George Washington University), Doody Enterprises "The CD helps the user produce advice sheets ... as the individual's status changes, the programme can be amended to reflect their changing needs." Working with Older People "A CD-Rom allows you to select the advice required and produce an individually tailored guideline...it is a good resource." Speech & Language Therapy in Practice "Provides easy to understand guidelines...an excellent resource manual for speech pathologists." - Doody Enterprises
