Experts gather for FEES masterclass

DP Medical Uncategorized Leave a comment

DP Medical is supporting an innovative masterclass that will see Speech and Language Therapists (SLT) gather together to learn more about the Fibreoptic Endoscopic of Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES).

 

The training event, being organised by the adult SLT department at the Royal Berkshire Hospital, will concentrate on excellence in practice and include the anatomy and physiology viewed on flexible nasendoscopy, indication/contraindication and safety, how to do the FEES examination well, and practical scoring and interpretation practice.

 

DP Medical has recently provided the stroke unit at the hospital with a XION EndoCompact and is supporting the event sponsoring the refreshments and supplying some equipment for the hands on element of the course.

 

Alafiya Sachak, a speech and language therapist at Royal Berkshire Hospital, said: “It is so important to really understand the theory and practicalities of conducting a complex assessment such as FEES; and having the right background knowledge is empirical.

 

“We are fortunate to have been able to organise an expert like Annette Kelly to provide us with the knowledge and expertise on this subject through this very exciting one-day FEES course. We will have a great mix of professionals on the course including Speech and Language Therapists from other trusts, ENT doctors, and stroke consultants.”

 

The FEES course, presented by Annette Kelly, will take place on Monday 20 November 2017 and is a great introduction for those new to FEES, as well as a wonderful CPD opportunity for those already using FEES.

 

As places will be limited, book your place on the course soon, please email: alafiya.sachak@royalberkshire.nhs.uk  or call 0118 3225205 for further information.
