Dysphagia is a complex condition that can have significant social, developmental and psychological effects. Alongside the physiology and pathophysiology of the condition, dysphagia can rob patients of the most basic pleasures, such as eating and drinking, causing ongoing difficulties for individuals in social situations throughout the lifespan.
As an acknowledged component of evidence-based practice, the humble case report encourages clinical reflection and may be the spark that generates new thinking and motivation for future research. Clinical Cases in Dysphagia provides an opportunity to gain insight into the unique and varied presentation and management of dysphagia across a range of different conditions. With chapters provided by expert clinicians and based on clinical examples from the trenches, the reader may gain insights into their own practice patterns, refining their clinical problem solving and valuing the education that is offered to each of us by our patients.
With additional online resources to support the case-based approach, the book emphasizes the importance of multidisciplinary care and reflects everyday clinical practice, making it a must-read for clinicians and students.
