The SALT team also provides full support and guidance, so if you have any questions or any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your local SALT service:
Following the completion of the Swallowing Matters e-training packages, every staff member is required to complete the "Swallowing Matters e-training Feedback" questionnaire, which can be found here. Please ensure you fill out your care facility (e.g. name of the ward, nursing home or residential home) and your name, so that we can issue you with a certificate of completion.
