Swallow Your Pride
About This Show
The Swallow Your Pride Podcast was created with the purpose of diving deeper into the issues that speech-language pathologists face when working with patients with swallowing disorders. We’ll discuss many controversial topics in order to provide the LATEST evidence-based treatment strategies, and create a community of dysphagia clinicians who want to consume incredibly valuable insight and information. Our goal is to allow you to #swallowyourpride, and be open and willing to try the latest in evidence based treatment approaches by learning from experts and researchers in our field in order to create the best outcomes for our patients who need it most. The Swallow Your Pride Podcast is hosted by Theresa Richard, M.A., CCC-SLP, BCS-S, a Board Certified Specialist in Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders. Theresa owns a mobile FEES company that services all of NY, PA, and NJ. She also provides FEES training and consulting. Theresa has a unique way of spreading digestible, evidence-based information so that clinicians of all levels of experience can implement it with their patients immediately.

How important is the recommendation section of our VFSS or FEES reports? Sure we can train a monkey to identify penetration or aspiration, but it takes a solid foundation in understanding dysphagia, aspiration, pneumonia, and the impact of diet modifications before one should even consider thinking they are prepared to perform instrumental assessments.
In this episode, Matt Ward is back for part 3 of his interview to discuss how our recommendations can help our patients or hold them back from reaching their full potential, and it's vital that we are well educated on the impact that all of our recommendations can have.
