Dysphagia: Swallowing Difficulties and Medicines
I recently saw a tweet featuring this website that offers free classes from various universities. I don't know much about FutureLearn but there seems to be a wide range of great, free classes. If you're interested, you can take this class with me! It starts on March 2, 2015, runs for 6 weeks and only requires 2 hours per week.
Dysphagia is within the scope of practice of an SLP and is an important part of the curriculum and clinical placements in your graduate studies. If you are unfamiliar with dysphagia, this class might be a great place to start. If you already have a good foundation of knowledge, this course will likely build on that by focusing on the medication aspect of dysphagia. Check out the video below to see what the course covers.

Once the course begins in March, I will be reviewing it on the blog. It is my first course with FutureLearn and so I'm going into it inexperienced but openminded.
