Advancing Dysphagia Practice Team

UCLan are proud to host the Advancing Dysphagia Practice Team, in partnership with Tees, Esk and Wear Valley NHS Foundation Trust.

All the ADP initiatives and events are delivered by highly specialist professionals who are recognised experts in their field.

Our events are open to healthcare professionals working with people who have dysphagia, with emphasis on the context of the Multi-Disciplinary Team. Our aim is to influence best practice by delivery of the highest quality, up-to-date, evidence-based professional development opportunities in dysphagia, by facilitating participants to develop their current knowledge and skills.

All sessions are framed by the context of the recent Francis Report and CQC Consultation and incorporate key issues of:
  • Clinical decision-making
  • Evidence-based practice
  • Multi-disciplinary working
  • Outcome measurement
  • Risk assessment
  • Service evaluation approaches
  • Skill-mix and working with assistants
  • Training others
  • Influences on concordance
