Management of patients with stroke: identification and management of dysphagia

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:1st Jun 2010

This guideline provides recommendations based on current evidence for best practice in the identification and management of dysphagia after stroke. As the evidence base is strongest for patients in the acute setting, the emphasis is on this context. The guideline does not apply to people with neurological conditions other than stroke, or to people with subarachnoid haemorrhage.

This guideline is relevant to all healthcare professionals in contact with stroke patients throughout the care pathway from initial primary care response, through hospital admission, on to continuing care in the community.
