If the word M-O-I-S-T freaks you out, then you might want to stop here. But if you’re a medSLP and want to learn more for your patients, then listen up! Dr. Anna Miles joins me in episode 199 to discuss everyone’s favorite topic- secretions! We’ve all seen patients with VERY poor secretion management, but how do we move from observing it to knowing what to do with it?

Dr. Miles shares research findings related to the validated New Zealand Secretion Scale (NZSS), and how we can use this tool to enhance clinical decision making and quantify risk for our patients with dysphagia.
