SIG 13 Perspectives Vol. 22, No. 2, June 2013

This issue of Perspectives highlights swallowing disorders associated with head and neck cancers. Swallow assessment instruments that are specific to this population are discussed. Surgical and non-surgical treatments for head and neck cancers are delineated and information is provided regarding the typical impact of these treatments in the early and late stages on swallowing performance. Rehabilitation strategies are also described, both for people who underwent surgical resection of their cancer versus individuals who received radiation therapy.
