COMMUNICATION AND SWALLOWING OUTCOMES IN PATIENTS WITH ACQUIRED AND PROGRESSIVE NEUROLOGICAL DISORDERS
Grant number: 1082910 | Funding period: 2015 - 2017
We all talk, eat and drink, but it’s not until we lose these skills that we recognise their importance. Communication & swallowing disorders following from progressive brain disorders such as dementia and ataxia result in daily disadvantage through poor educational and employment outcomes & social isolation. These deficits make the evaluation, long term monitoring and treatment a critical element in disease management.
