About the course

This live, virtual program is an intermediate level course for the creation and implementation of a multidisciplinary neonatal and infant fiberoptic endoscopic evaluation of swallowing (FEES) program. This is not an advanced FEES course.

Participants will receive two days of didactic education, infant FEES video interpretation, and an opportunity to observe a bottle and breastfeeding FEES procedure with an infant simulation doll and FEES equipment.

If you have any questions about course content, program implementation, or further FEES course training opportunities please email: [email protected].

Course objectives:
  • Describe at least two anatomical and physiologic abnormalities viewed endoscopically that contribute to infant dysphagia.
  • Distinguish at least two clinical indications for neonatal VFSS and FEES.
  • Identify the appropriate sequence for neonatal and infant bottle feeding and breastfeeding during FEES.
  • Identify two abnormal swallowing parameters observed during neonatal and infant FEES.
  • Identify at least three key components necessary to implement a multidisciplinary neonatal and infant FEES program.
  • Recognize the impact of at least two feeding problems on the infant/parent dyad.
