Board game aims to improve knowledge on dysphagia


I welcome any good information on the management of dysphagia because it's difficult and scary to manage. Too many such patients are left on wards at weekends with nobody but agency staff (with very variable skills) and HCAs. I have seen some clueless approaches varying from pureed diets, to nil by mouth for days until a SALT picks up a referral! Patients suffer from clueless care and anything that helps is good, even if it does seem puerile and patronising for qualified staff.
