Perspectives, SIG 13, Vol. 3, Part 2, 2018

This collection of articles primarily focused on the evidence-based use of screening techniques to identify swallowing disorders in patients with a variety of medical diagnoses. Kara Maharay and Kelly Salmon reviewed specific dysphagia screening tools for the neurologic population and provided readers with tips for implementing a screening protocol for patients with acute stroke, with a focus on multidisciplinary collaboration. Next, Joy Gaziano and Stephanie Watts provided an overview of the utility of screening for esophageal impairments during videofluoroscopic swallow studies. Mario Alberto Landera, Donna S. Lundy, and Amanda Demane extended the discussion by describing key considerations for speech-language pathologists (SLPs) managing dysphagia in patients with head and neck cancers and the importance of SLP participation in the multidisciplinary head and neck tumor board. Finally, Debra Suiter provided clinicians with an overview of some of the challenges and controversies associated with current dysphagia screening tools.
