Board game aims to improve knowledge on dysphagia

Comment

I'm not sure clinicians and qualified nurses who regularly use their skills to assess a patients ability to swallow, but perhaps support staff who work in care homes and the like might find it a useful source of information. There is nothing wrong with making learning fun - as long as they are successful in passing on the information and it is retained. I remember prior to my nurse training getting very little training and support in the privately run nursing home that I worked in and at the age of 16, pretty much having to feel my own way on a variety of things. A tool like his may have been useful. I guess what I am trying to say is don't knock it - if you know alot about dysphagia - then this tool isn't aimed at you.
