Dysphagia: Swallowing Disorders

The word Dysphagia is from the Greek root “dys” meaning disorder and “phag” meaning food. People with dysphagia have difficulty swallowing and may even experience pain while swallowing (odynophagia). Some people may be completely unable to swallow or may have trouble safely swallowing liquids, foods, or saliva. When that happens, eating becomes a challenge. Often, dysphagia makes it difficult to take in enough calories and fluids to nourish the body and can lead to additional serious medical problems.

Course Objectives

  • Learn what dysphagia is and how it affects different populations
  • Learn how to treat dysphagia and minimize its effects
  • Understand dysphagia in the elderly, including those with dementia and Parkinson’s disease
  • Understand dysphagia’s connection to developmental disability
  • Learn techniques for handling youth dysphagia
