Dysphagia Support Training for support workers can minimise the risk of serious health complications and improve a person’s mealtime-related quality of life.
Alarmingly, studies have found that aspiration pneumonia and choking were among the most common respiratory causes of death for people with disability in NSW, QLD and Victoria.
Our training is targeted to provide support workers with best practice skills to help reduce respiratory distress.
The training developed in consultation with speech pathologists, is delivered by experienced nurse educators and aligns with the revised NDIS Practice Standards: High Intensity Support Skill Descriptors (HISSD)
Premium Health’s Dysphagia Support Training provides the skills and knowledge to implement a mealtime management plan, monitor people with dysphagia during mealtimes and respond appropriately in the event of a choking incident.
Premium Health offers our Dysphagia Support Training both online and face-to-face.
