Availability: 365 days from registration, unless other agreement applies

The course material is at an introductory level intended for the following professionals: SLP, OT, PT, Clinical Dietitians, Nurses, Pharmacists, and Physician’s Assistants.

If you achieve an 80% passing score on the Midterm, you may continue with the rest of the course.

Following the beginning “Foundations” section, we move on to address medications affecting the Central Nervous System. This discussion includes:

  • Medications associated with oral, pharyngeal and esophageal dysphagia
  • Causes of dysphagia
  • Drug-induced dysphagia

Medications used to treat psychosis, depression, anxiety and insomnia, seizures, bipolar disorders, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease are also addressed. Each part of the course describes the mechanism of action of the medications, dosing and side effects, as well as related case studies.

Please note there is one required textbook that accompanies this course.

COURSE GOAL

The focus of this course is on providing access to precise information valuable in the evaluation and treatment of patients with Central Nervous System dysfunction and Dysphagia.

OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, the Learner will be able to:

  • Describe how dysphagia occurs as the result of several variables, including the decrease in arousal, direct suppression of the brainstem swallowing function, impaired oropharyngeal sensation, and disturbances in salivation
  • Discuss how medications that suppress Central Nervous System function can affect the different phases of swallowing
  • Summarize how the side effects and drug interactions associated with medications affecting the Central Nervous System can negatively impact eating and swallowing
  • Describe the impact of medication-induced dystonia and extrapyramidal side effects on choking and aspiration risk
  • Identify medications with anticholinergic properties, and explain how these medications can impact gastrointestinal motility and swallowing
  • Assess case history information to determine the probability that the medications described in the case history will affect eating and swallowing ability.
