OROPHARYNGEAL SWALLOWING AND AGING: A REVIEW
By: DEBRA C. L. GLEESON
Department of Speech Pathology and Audiology, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, Michigan
This article provides an overview of normal oropharyngeal swallowing in relation to advanced age, with specific attention to oropharyngeal movement patterns and temporospatial swallowing durations. Swallowing disorders associated with aging are addressed with specific attention to the need for application of normative data to the diagnostic process. Attention is drawn to the need for continued research on swallowing function in the normal adult if efforts to maximize functional independence in eating and swallowing in the institutionalized adult are to be realized.
Ethical Service Delivery to Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations
Ethical Service Delivery to Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Populations: A Specific Focus on Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Populations
By Tedd Masiongale
DeKalb Medical– Downtown Decatur Decatur, GA
Purpose: Shifting demographics amid a growing population have given rise to a culturally and linguistically diverse client base. Professionals’ recognition and understanding of effective service delivery with individuals from culturally and linguistically diverse groups is improving. Cultural competence is emerging as a necessary skill set for practitioners to deliver clinically competent services with diverse communities including the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender (GLBT) population.
Method: Current literature and Internet sources were used to gather demographic information analyze policy documents related to ethical service delivery and explore current trends and recommendations for appropriate service delivery with a specific focus on the GLBT population.
Results and Conclusions: The demographic makeup of the U.S. population is rapidly changing. Professionals, especially those outside urban areas, are only beginning to understand and adapt their clinical practices to adequately serve the GLBT population. Despite some resistance to change and political maneuvering, which could be construed to contradict ethical service delivery, professionals are realizing that ethical service delivery that embraces a recognition of their own culture and that of the individuals they serve results in greater functional outcomes.
