A multinational consensus on dysphagia in Parkinson’s disease (PD)

16 September 2021

We recently came across the above paper via Pere Clave on LinkedIn.

He is the Director of Research, Innovation and Academic Development. Hospital de Mataró, Catalonia, Spain. With a special interest in Dysphagia he is the founding member of the European Society for Swallowing Disorders.

The objective was to review literature available and to define consensus statements on the screening and the diagnosis of dysphagia in PD, as well as on the impact of dysphagia on the prognosis and quality of life of PD patients.

The conclusion of the research provides a framework to guide the neurologist in the timely detection and accurate diagnosis of dysphagia in PD.

Regular readers of our post will know that there is very little existing or new research on dysphagia.

This is therefore incredibly useful and rare. Created with input from a multinational team it collated multiple sources to provide a useful framework for healthcare professionals.
