Do you work in dysphagia management?

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Last Updated (Monday, 24 November 2014 16:19)

If so, NDR-UK needs your input.

Developing information to support dysphagia management is central to improving quality of life, health outcomes and minimising risk. NDR-UK is exploring how to adapt our ‘First Steps to Easier Swallowing’ (ref: 9092), to improve accessibility for people prescribed a texture modified diet following stroke.

Our initial consultations have produced some interesting suggestions for development, including:

  • Making information mobile and accessible in any environment, for example by computer, tablet or related mobile device in or away from home.
  • Provide moving images that could be followed in real time.
  • Provide interactive information to meet patients’ ‘prescribed’ food texture (B-E) and fluid stage (1-3).
  • More examples to offer a greater variety of food options.
  • Touch screen or voice control.

We are seeking views and guidance from as many people working in dysphagia to guide us on what is needed and what will work to meet practical and clinical needs of patients and carers alike. Please have your say in the development of this important resource by following this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2WYFR5Y to a short survey.

Many thanks for your ongoing support.
