“The Biber Protocol® Certificate Practitioner Certificate training on dysphagia rehabilitation”


This training course pairs the principles of electrophysiology with traditional swallowing exercises in order to re-educate laryngeal muscles in patients with dysphagia. The course provides an overview of patient selection, a rationale for Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) parameter settings, and electrode placement.

Course Learning Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of the training course, clinicians will be able to:
• Explain Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES)
• Describe the properties of electrical stimulation and its impact on muscle tissue
• Describe the patient selection criteria for which NMES is indicated for the treatment of dysphagia
• Identify the characteristics of NMES
• Discuss the properties of Electrodes
• Discuss and demonstrate the application of therapeutic protocol in the treatment of dysphagia
• Describe and justify why there is a continued need for traditional swallowing exercises in conjunction with the therapeutic protocol
• Explain why adjusting the electrical parameters of the Biber Protocol is so important
• Demonstrate effective communication skills in patient education and allied health professionals regarding the candidacy and use of NMES for the treatment of dysphagia
