Join us for the first annual Sydney Swallowing Science Lab symposium at The University of Sydney

About this Event

Are you a speech pathologist?

Do you work with adults?

Are you interested in FREE professional development?

If yes, read on…

On October 3rd the Sydney Swallowing Lab will host its first free symposium where members of our Lab will present their recent findings across various topics related to swallowing and swallowing disorders. Topics will include the assessment and management of swallowing disorders in populations like head and neck cancer, stroke, neurodegenerative diseases and in conditions like cerebral palsy and whiplash. There will also be time to discuss the efficiency of interventions speech pathologists use in their treatment of swallowing disorders.

This symposium will be filled with presentations by clinician-researchers, who will be presenting the latest findings from their PhD projects and other research projects. The aim of this symposium is to bridge the gap between science and clinical practice. All presenters will focus on how their findings can influence the way speech pathologists assess and treat swallowing disorders in various populations (in different stages of life).

The preliminary program will cover the following topics (in alphabetical order):

-Prevalence, identification and management of tongue tie in Central Australia (D. Akbari)

-Dysphagia in Adults with Multiple Sclerosis (D. Alali)

-Dysphagia interventions in adults with cerebral palsy (L. Apokourastos)

-Active swallowing exercises in patients with ALS (H. Bogaardt)

-Oncological advancements in treatment for head and neck cancer (E. Charters)

-Optimising the dosage of swallowing therapy in stroke rehabilitation (J. Choy)

-The Role of Speech-Language Pathologists in Palliative Care (K. Kelly)

-The effects of carbonated drinks on the onset of swallowing (J. Lee)

-Is the IOPI effective in targeting swallowing muscles? (D. Ng)

-Changes in viscosity of thickened formulas used for infants with dysphagia (V. Ng)

-Is Expiratory Muscle Strength Training (EMST) efficient? (C. Petherick)

-Exploring dysphagia and dysphonia in patients with whiplash (D. Stone)

-Muscle activation during the Mendelsohn maneuver (A. Yuan)
