Board game aims to improve knowledge on dysphagia


I cannot believe it. All these comments are disgraceful. I have been qualified for 18 years and 2 months ago moved to the stroke unit. I thought I knew a lot about dysphagia but I could not have been more wrong. It is a hugely complex subject which is why Speech and Language therapists spend so much time with patients who have this condition. Yes, as nurses we have a general knowledge, but we are supposed to be learning and adapting ourselves for patient benefit all the time. What I have read is unbelieveable, to be honest. You are either all fantastic nurses who know everything about everything, or you are just insulted because you are in fact probably ignorant of the complexities of the problem and think it is an easy subject to know about. As for the hand over comment, patients conditions can change rapidly, especially in stroke, so get over yourselves and embrace the resources that are offered.
