Eating, Drinking and Swallowing elearning now available

Posted on: March 16th, 2023 by Louise Garrahan No Comments

A new elearning programme for speech and language therapy students is now available.

Pre-registration, Eating, Drinking, and Swallowing (EDS), explores the pre-assessment, assessment, management, and discharge of 2 adult and 2 paediatric patients with EDS difficulties.

On completion of the programme students should send a copy of their assessment results to their higher education institute as part record of achievement of the competencies.

The speech and language therapist has an important role in working with people with EDS needs. By 2026 all speech and language therapy students will graduate having achieved pre-registration EDS competencies.

This elearning was developed through a joint project between Health Education England and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.

For more information and to access the programme, please visit the Pre-registration, Eating, Drinking, and Swallowing webpage.

elfh is a NHS England programme in partnership with the NHS and professional bodies
