Welcome to the resource hub: Best Practice in Dysphagia
Aims of this resource hub
Providing alternative formulations of medicines to vulnerable patients, such as licensed liquids, is an important part of the GP’s role in providing patient-centred care, where empowered patients can identify and manage risk factors, receive individualised and holistic care, and are equal partners in managing their health.
Patients with swallowing difficulties may not take their medication, which may affect adherence and outcomes. It is often not appropriate to open capsules or crush tablets so alternative formulations or routes of administration should be considered when prescribing medication.
The educational resources featured on this website aim to help you keep up to date with best practice in the management of patients with swallowing difficulties.
We hope that you will find this resource hub informative and useful.
