SWALLOWING ASSESSMENTS

Description

Swallowing difficulties are significant for safety, nutrition, quality of life and wellbeing. Specialist assessment and treatment can identify the nature of the problem and the most appropriate therapy, strategies and management plan for the person. An onward referral for instrumental assessment using either X Ray (videofluoroscopy) or endoscope (Fibre Endoscopic Examination of Swallowing –FEES) may be required for additional information. Our SLT will be able to jointly carry out procedure with SLT in local setting and analyse findings.

Conditions

Head and Neck cancer Neurological disorders and diseases e.g. brain injury, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy etc. Dementia

Benefits

Timing, strength and coordination of swallowing is invisible to the human eye and therefore an assessment is necessary to ensure safety and reduce risk of aspiration. (FEES / Videofluoroscopy)

Who’s Involved

Dysphagia assessment and management is carried out by Leanne the speech and language therapist. However, we again approach this in a transdisciplinary way. Background posture and function is key to the pre oral and oral phase of swallowing therefore both the Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists in the team will work with Leanne to create the optimal environment for effective swallowing and success of treatment.

If you would like to discuss this or any other service please ring
