Multidisciplinary Dysphagia Board

How many times have you wished you could call the laryngologist or esophagologist that your patient is going to see to talk with them and share your insights? Or maybe they referred the patient to you but you aren’t quite sure why…

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have a meeting of the minds and hash out your cases all together, in the same room, at the same time? My guests this week are doing exactly that and as a result, are massively improving patient care for those with dysphagia! Talk about a seamless patient experience!

In this episode of SYP, I have a conversation with Jessica Gregor, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S Dr. Allon Kahn, MD, and Dr. Will Karle, MD, about the ideal collaboration: a multidisciplinary dysphagia board that meets in person to provide continuous, congruent, cohesive care to their dysphagia patients. Talk about a DREAM team! Their dysphagia board is changing the game, keeping patients from falling through the cracks, and exemplifying true teamwork.
