DRS 2018 Annual Meeting

Overview and Intended Audience

This meeting is designed for a variety of clinicians, researchers, resident physicians, fellows and students from a wide range of disciplines including gastroenterology,
neurology, otolaryngology, radiology, speech-language pathology, nutrition, biomedical engineering, dentistry, pediatrics, psychology and basic sciences, who take
care of patients with swallowing disorders, including aspiration, and/or conduct research on patients with swallowing disorders.

Course Format

Different formats were chosen, based on the target audience for that particular activity. For example, didactic lectures were chosen for disseminating an established set of new information that needed to be conveyed to the entire membership in a uniform manner. For areas of controversy, a point-counterpoint discussion between thought leaders with divergent viewpoints were developed, with time for input by the audience. Akin to this, each session is moderated by an expert that will be directing questions to the panel and integrating responses from the participants to stimulate in-depth discussion at the end of each section. Using these varied educational methods will increase the likelihood of achieving the objectives and desired results.

CME Accreditation and Credit Designation

In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Cine-Med and the Dysphagia Research Society. Cine-Med is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
