You’ll get the chance to attend guest presentations from experienced practitioners from a range of disciplines and across a range of clinical populations with dysphagia. You’ll hear from professionals working in fields such as neonatal care, paediatric special needs, adult learning difficulties, acquired neurological conditions, head and neck cancers, dementia, and end of life care.

These guests will be invited to present illustrative examples of multidisciplinary services initiatives in dysphagia care from their own work setting.
