A new dysphagia learning resource from Health Education England (HEE) is now available online.

HEE e-Learning for Healthcare has worked in partnership with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the RCSLT and other industry experts to develop Dysphagia Guide, an e-learning resource for those working with people living with dysphagia.

This is a fantastic resources for anyone in the health and care workforce, as well as informal carers and people with dysphagia themselves. It was developed with the help of care home staff, and can be used to support people working in care to gain the relevant level of competency for their role, as outlined in the RCSLT Eating, Drinking and Swallowing Competency Framework. It’s also a useful guide for managers in policy and workforce development.

The Dysphagia Guide  resource includes five sessions that cover the following topics:

  • Essentials
  • Food
  • Quality and Safety
  • Training and Resources
  • Workforce
