Address Med Concerns for Patients With Dysphagia
Patients with dysphagia will need your advice on how to take oral meds safely.
It’s common in conditions such as stroke...Parkinson’s disease...dementia...and head and neck cancers.
Start by reviewing the med list...to see if any meds can be deprescribed. Also look for meds that may contribute to dysphagia...such as anticholinergics (oxybutynin, etc) leading to dry mouth.
