Swallow Screening, Performance Improvement and Stroke in the Great Lakes Region

Presented by the Great Lakes Regional Stroke Network’s dysphagia work group. Faculty share key learnings about: components of a swallow screen, literature findings, the difference between a swallow screen and a swallow assessment, future directions of swallow screening in the stroke patient, feedback from The Joint Commission and follow-up evaluation results. Two new tools are presented: a swallow screen checklist that will enable you to check your swallow screen tool against best practices identified in the literature and a second checklist to assess your swallow screen process.
