Abstract

Teleswallowing:-
• Is an innovation designed by Blackpool Speech and Language Therapy Department to enable remote swallowing assessment of dysphagic patients resident in nursing homes
• It is a response to the growing demand on Speech and Language Therapy departments for swallowing assessments
• Was initially piloted in three nursing homes between August 2013 and March 2014, and was evaluated as successful in April 2014
• Was expanded to five further nursing homes in October 2014 to test findings on a larger scale and to enrich the clinical case for service transformation.
