Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

The innovative use of a feeding, swallowing, and nutrition interprofessional education event gave students the opportunity to learn about and practice various aspects of how OTs, speech therapists, and nutritionists work together. Students from these three different fields of study expanded their knowledge of each profession’s scope of practice and learned how interprofessional collaboration can result in the maximum benefit for a client in the healthcare setting.
