A Multidisciplinary Approach to Managing Swallowing Dysfunction in Older People provides comprehensive coverage on oropharyngeal dysphagia (OD), focusing on older patient phenotypes. The book  provides the knowledge needed for translational researchers and professionals to aid in the detection, diagnosis, treatment and management of OD, ultimately improving patient quality of life. OD has been recently considered a geriatric syndrome because of its high prevalence, the increase of life-expectancy and the need to be managed by a multidisciplinary approach. This reference takes a novel approach to OD, covering all aspects as a geriatric syndrome, examining a complicated and multi-level topic in a succinct way.

Contents include the most innovative information available in current literature combined with practical applications to improve the diagnosis and treatments of OD as a geriatric syndrome. This is the perfect reference for translational researchers, physicians and healthcare professionals dealing with OD.
