FEES Foundation: on-line course
Date: All courses fully booked - new dates coming soon for summer 2021
Cost: £175 total per person
Skill: Working towards RCSLT FEES Level 1
Two x 3 hour interactive training sessions (6 hours total), provided online for a small group of therapists.
Whilst some of the content is taught through presentations, there is an emphasis on practical review of images with participation and group work. These sessions will be supplemented with work for home practise.
Our SVS FEES DOPS framework document (direct observation of procedural skills) will provide you with a road-map of the skills required to develop your FEES competencies. It gives a step by step structured programme of learning so that you know the skills to be developed and assessed. It will provide you with detailed feedback and a useful documentation to take away at the end of the day for continuing your competency development.

Meet FEES referrer competency requirements as set out by RCSLT
Be familiar with digital imaging systems required to carry out FEES
Recognise landmarks as viewed endoscopically
Have a basic skill in FEES interpretation and be able to identify anatomical abnormalities
Understand need for compliance with local and national policies and procedures necessary for setting up a safe FEES service
