|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Dysphagia||Behavioral: behavioral swallowing exercises/ strategies||Phase 2 Phase 3|
Stroke compromises swallowing function, causing dysphagia, in one quarter to one half of all patients. Dysphagia is associated with an increased risk of aspiration pneumonia, dehydration and malnutrition. Despite the development and implementation of several strategies of managing dysphagia after stroke, Few have been evaluated by means of randomised controlled trials.
Comparisons: This study aims to compare stroke patients with dysphagia assigned to receive usual swallowing care, prescribed by the attending physician; standardised low intensity intervention comprising swallowing compensation strategies and diet prescription; or standardised high intensity intervention and dietary prescription .
