Most SLPs have a wishlist of things they’d like to have (read: things they need to do their job.) If standardized dysphagia assessment is on your list, this episode is for you! In episode 224 of SYP, I do a deep dive with Julie Peterson, MS, CCC-SLP, and radiologist, Steven Sireci, MD about the true price of the burden of dysphagia.

During this discussion, we touch on the necessity of standardized practice in dysphagia across the entire continuum of care, common objections to moving towards standardized dysphagia assessment, advocating for change, and the educational programs available to SLPs in this area. Julie and Dr. Sireci are both incredibly knowledgeable in this area and provide invaluable tips and information to help SLPs make true change in their facility and in the lives of their patients.
