How important is the recommendation section of our VFSS or FEES reports? Sure we can train a monkey to identify penetration or aspiration, but it takes a solid foundation in understanding dysphagia, aspiration, pneumonia, and the impact of diet modifications before one should even consider thinking they are prepared to perform instrumental assessments.

In this episode, Matt Ward is back for part 3 of his interview to discuss how our recommendations can help our patients or hold them back from reaching their full potential, and it’s vital that we are well educated on the impact that all of our recommendations can have.
