Symposium Learning in F.O.T.T.®

 

Over 300 participants attended the 4th F.O.T.T. Symposium, held online on 10th and 11th June 2022.

The event was hosted by the Special Interest Group, SIG F.O.T.T. International and FOrmaTT GmbH.
The Symposium was free of charge, as a token of appreciation for all health care workers who worked through the Pandemic!
Neurorehab-Teams from around the world attended, including from Ireland, Scandinavia, Spain, South Africa, United Kingdom, China, Austria, Italy, Germany and Switzerland.

The Symposium began with an interview of Kay Coombes, who developed the F.O.T.T.® Approach. She described the context that led to its development and her vision for the future of F.O.T.T.®.

Practise oriented presentations included use of the F.O.T.T. Algorithm, Clinical Reasoning, Tracheostomy Tube Management including positioning, Poster-Session and the Implementation of Practical Topics for the multi/inter- disciplinary Team using 'Focus of the Month'.
'F.O.T.T. meets FEES' focussed on how posture influences swallowing and provided illustrations showing the effect of F.O.T.T.® tactile assistance on swallowing.

Presentations will be incorporated in the 5. Edition of the F.O.T.T.® Book (due to be published in 2023).
