FEES competency training and mentoring is offered through NDoscopy Dysphagia Specialists for medical facilities in NY and NJ as well as for clinicians looking to gain expertise!
Do you need FEES competency training or FEES mentorship? It is important to be trained from a qualified and experienced FEES provider to obtain competency. Competency cannot be accomplished with a weekend course. NDoscopy Dysphagia Specialists have completed thousands of FEES exams and have completed extensive, advanced training in FEES.
FEES competency trainings are offered to skilled nursing facilities, hospitals, rehabilitation, long term facilities and for clinicians to help Speech-Language Pathologists feel confident in their scoping abilities. We travel to your facility to provide on-site FEES competency training and mentorship for medical facilities in New York and New Jersey for qualified Speech-Language Pathologists.
You can also contact us for more information if you do not have a facility and are looking to gain FEES training individually. FEES training and mentorship includes chart review, equipment set-up, direct passes with actual patients, proper endoscope handling and body mechanics, disinfection of the scope, FEES analysis, report writing, protocols and more! Competency will include a comprehensive consensus-based verification tool.
NDoscopy Dysphagia Specialists are knowledgeable, professional and approachable. We provide a fun and safe learning environment. After trainings, we are here to help continue your growth!
