Feeding, Swallowing: Who’s job is it…. Speech Language Pathology? Occupational Therapy?

Nicole Posts:

DEAR ERI COMMUNITY: I have a great interest in feeding, eating, and swallowing which is a specialty certification for OTs. However, in acute care there is great resistance to practice in this area because of the strong presence of SLPs. I am wondering if anyone else has come across this issue, or currently practices in this specialty and has any advice on how I can get started. Thanks!
