The Charleston Swallowing Conference at Northwestern University is a clinical multidisciplinary conference designed for dysphagia clinicians who practice across all care settings and treat individuals of all ages. This special issue of the American Journal of Speech-Language Pathology contains selected articles from the July 2018 conference dedicated to innovation and implementation of dysphagia practice. The collection of articles includes clinical best practices, new patient-centered assessment and treatment discoveries, re-examination and application of current practices across the age spectrum, and the role of novel technology and data science initiatives. Clinicians and researchers will gain practical, tangible, and directly translatable information toward advanced skill sets in swallowing assessment and treatment.
