Description of Webinar
Have you wondered why some people “buy-in” to their dysphagia therapy and others do not? Buy-in consists of willingness, acceptance, and agreement, which are critical for participation in therapy. Effective rehabilitation and management of dysphagia requires buy-in from the person, their family, and the clinician. This webinar will discuss techniques and tools to leverage for facilitating buy-in and ultimately support the person’s goals.
1) Describe components to support buy-in for optimizing therapy effectiveness, encompassing a person-centered approach.
2) Learn models to implement for assessing readiness to change, engagement and goal realization.
3) Review evidence-based approaches to maximize adherence based on predictors and modifiable factors to increase adherence.
