This conference will utilize a case-based learning approach to engage participants in guided discussion and small group learning. We will explore 3 adult and 3 pediatric dysphagia case studies across the continuum of assessment and treatment through recovery. Adult cases will include the following diagnoses: head/neck cancer, CVA, and neurodegenerative disorder with concomitant dysphagia. Pediatric cases will include feeding/swallowing with a NICU admission, a chronic neuromuscular disorder, and a behavior-based feeding disordered client. Specifically, the conference will highlight current best available evidence to support commonly used evaluation methods, including bedside and instrumental assessments for each of the types of clients. Participants will also explore collaborations with other disciplines in interprofessional practice, as well as cultural considerations that may impact assessment and/or treatment, such as adaptive feeding equipment, AAC dependence, and limited access. Portions of the conference will include hands-on experience for audience members, as well as onsite access to technology utilized in treatment of persons with dysphagia.

Stigma is defined as a set of negative beliefs that a group or society holds about a topic or group of people. The World Health Organization has classified stigma as having a detrimental effect on the treatment of individuals and is a huge barrier to recovery. Public attitudes about various stigmatizing conditions indicate that individuals with a substance use disorder are viewed more negatively than individuals with a mental health disorder. This stigma promotes the vicious cycle that is embedded in the disease of substance use disorder. In the state of Alabama, stigma presents as a barrier to seeking treatment and directly affects the way an individual views themselves. The goal of this summit is to address stigma, as it relates to individuals with a substance use disorder, by dispelling myths, educating on evidence-based practices, and bringing awareness to this public health issue.
