Aimed at the speech and language therapist wishing to develop the practical skills elements of Fibreoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) or Endoscopic Evaluation of the Larynx for voice disordered patients (EEL). This course will give you intensive training in nasendoscopy skills necessary for assessment of oropharyngeal dysphagia and/or voice disorders. Small group work will ensure that you are well supported, and both events will be held in a spacious, airy, and comfortable training environment.

Day one will see you building skills in safely passing the nasendoscope. On day two you will progress to  use nasendoscopy for assessing swallow function with the opportunity to work through a FEES protocol using the high and low endoscope positions. Those developing EEL skills will have an introduction to stroboscopic assessment and use an EEL protocol.

Course Prerequisites

Prior to this training you will have undertaken the theoretical component of FEES training to at least foundation level. Those wishing to learn nasendoscopy for EEL will have experience of working in a joint voice clinic and prerequisites as specified in the RCSLT EEL Position Paper 2020. We would also strongly advise that you have plans in place for ongoing supervision of your nasendoscopy skills upon return to your workplace to ensure your continued competency development.
