Evidence-Based Practice in Dysphagia Rehabilitation (2018-001)
With advances in research, our understanding of dysphagia is ever changing. It can be difficult for busy clinicians to stay abreast of these changes. “Evidence-Based Practice in Dysphagia Rehabilitation” is a course designed to highlight the updates in our field and describe evidence-based, efficacious techniques to rehabilitate swallowing.
This course is taught by Ed Bice, M.Ed., CCC-SLP.

During his career, Mr. Bice has served as a Regional Manager, Vice President of Clinical Services, and Chief Operating Officer. He has been a speaker for national and state level conventions as well as colleges and universities. Currently, Mr. Bice serves as the Assistant Editor of Perspectives for SIG 15 and served on the Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders Topic Committee for ASHA 2017.
