Clinical Dysphagia Series
Goal and Scope
John C. Rosenbek, PhD and Harrison N. Jones, PhD, Series Editors
Plural Publishing proudly announces a new series of books in oropharyngeal dysphagia: Clinical Dysphagia. The series, edited by John C. Rosenbek and Harrison N. Jones, comprises volumes with content aimed specifically at students, eager to learn best practices, and clinicians, ever alert to confirming that they are practicing state of the science and art care. Volumes cover:
- oropharyngeal dysphagia in stroke
- traumatic brain injury
- head and neck cancer
- neurodegenerative diseases
- developmental disorders
- tumors of the nervous system
- cerebral palsy
- trach and ventilator dependent
- special populations
Each volume combines the best available evidence with the soundest lessons of clinical experience, thereby satisfying evidence-based practice’s major components. The books are necessarily focused but thoroughly inclusive: all possible contributions to an individual patient’s management are outlined. This series is rich in figures, tables, summaries, highlights of critical information, and stories from the clinic.
Clinical Dysphagia aims to contribute to dissemination of what is best about the art and science of oropharyngeal dysphagia management. We will know that aim has been reached when these volumes begin wearing holes in backpacks and lab coats.
