DYSPHAGIA AND DECISIONS: CAN ETHICS EASE THE BURDEN?

A study day focusing on the ethics of decision making and complex situations surrounding feeding that SLTs face when working with patients and care givers. We will discuss the burdens of these decisions, including the factors that cause burden to families and caregivers.

What is represented by the action we call “feeding” and how/why do our best clinical intentions become misaligned or possibly harmful to patients and families? We will formulate responses to case studies based on ethical concepts and clinical knowledge.Professor Paula Leslie PhD, MA (Bioethics), CCC-SLP, FRCSLT is a senior lecturer at University of Lancaster. She maintains full clinical licenses in the USA and UK where she is a Specialist Adviser to the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapy in swallowing disorders. Her interests include the process of clinical decision making, health professionals’ education and non-traditional routes to advanced clinical training. She publishes, provides support to researchers, and provides continuing education from grassroots to international level and across the health professions on complex clinical decision making, ethics and end of life decisions in vulnerable populations.
