ESSD support World Swallowing Day to increase awareness of dysphagia

World Swallowing Day is 12 December.

To increase awareness about dysphagia, the European Society for Swallowing Disorders (ESSD) has created a short survey  for health care professionals working in dysphagia. Click on the link: and fill in the information about the patients you have screened or assessed for dysphagia during the week 8-12 December, the type of patient and tool used and whether you used the ICD code in the medical report.

All participants will be recognized on the ESSD website for collaborating in the survey and will receive the results which we hope will collect valuable information from all over the world.

Please join us in this initiative to increase awareness of dysphagia.

Update: Thank you very much for your contribution to this project! You can see the results following this link:
