Abstract

This review considered any quantitative studies that evaluated interventions which focused on the nursing role in the recognition and screening for dysphagia in adults over the age of 18 years with neurogenic dysphagia. Other interventions concerned with the nursing management of dysphagia were also of interest to the review.
Outcomes of interest were:
Early recognition by nurses of those with difficulty swallowing
Clinical screening by nurses of any patient with suspected swallowing difficulties
Timely referral by nurses to speech-language pathologists for formal assessment
Search strategy The databases searched included CINAHL, MEDLINE, Cochrane CENTRAL, Web of Science, Embase and Mednar. The search for unpublished studies included OpenSIGLE, New York Academy of Medicine Library, Gray Literature Report and Dissertations Abstracts International.
