EP 26: Strength & Skill Training and our current understanding of swallowing with Maggie-Lee Huckabee

At this year’s conference of the European Society for Swallowing Disorders (ESSD), we had the great pleasure of speaking with Prof. Maggie-Lee Huckabee. Together we discussed her recently published article “The Evolution of Swallowing Rehabilitation and Emergence of Biofeedback Modalities” (Huckabee et al., 2023). Maggie-Lee explains how our understanding of swallowing and swallowing rehabilitation has changed over the years. She also provides great ideas of how we can best implement skill training and feedback into our clinical practice with people with dysphagia – even without fancy and expensive equipment. Enjoy listening!

The literature that Maggie-Lee mentions throughout this episode is available in the reference list of her article. Maggie-Lee has also given a great TEDx Talk in Christchurch in 2018 which you can watch here.

A big thank you to all our listeners. We wish you happy holidays and a great start to 2024.
