Theresa Richard and Bonnie Martin-Harris

Ever wondered how the MBSImP became THE standardization of MBSS? Where did the 17 components and 12 swallows come from? If you’ve had those questions or just really love to learn about all things swallowing, this is the episode for you!

In episode of 235 SYP, I have the privilege of talking with the one and only Dr. Bonnie Martin-Harris about the development and creation of the Modified Barium Swallow Impairment Profile. Dr. Martin-Harris takes us down memory lane as she shares the patient who inspired her to dive into standardization of swallow studies, the team that helped create the MBSImP, and the process of getting this tool to the masses. She discusses the current research that is continuing to validate the protocol and where research may be headed in the future. Dr. Martin-Harris is a pioneer in our field and a joy to listen to as she shares her journey.
