Dysphagia Screen - Patient Population

For which patients should the dysphagia screen be performed?

Professional recommendations support the use of dysphagia screenings in all stroke patients. It would be up to the organization to determine which type of dysphagia screening would be best used in the stroke patient population and how that would be implemented in a standardized manner throughout the organization.
