BAH: To Eat or Not to Eat – That is the Question for Patients with Dysphagia

January 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

TO EAT OR NOT TO EAT: THAT IS THE QUESTION

Patients with dysphagia (DG) often request quality of life feeds (QoLF). Few patients request QoLF while enduring repeat admissions to acute care for aspiration pneumonia.

This single case study examines one such presentation from several perspectives (patient, family, HCPs). We will review ethical and medical arguments for and against permitting oral intake.

When:  Wednesday, January 15, 2020 from 12 – 1p.m.

Where: G.003 Meeting Room, Bridgepoint Active Healthcare

 Who:   Melissa Turner-Jospeph

             MHSc, SLPSpeech-Language Pathologist, Reg. CASLPO

    Peter Allatt

    MA, MHSc Bioethicist, Sinai Health (Mount Sinai Hospital and Bridgepoint Active Health Care)
