Employing state-of-the art technology to create 

innovative swallowing neurorehabilitation interventions

Welcome to the Swallowing Neurorehabilitation Research Lab!

We are pleased to share some of our research and education activities with you and hope you will find some interesting and helpful ideas for your clinical and/or research work. We are always happy to meet new link-minded people who share our passion for improving the lives of people affected by dysphagia.

Our current front page news is our recent paper on Post-extubation dysphagia incidence in critically ill patients: A systematic review and meta-analysis, led by our PhD student Melanie McIntyre. You can access the article at the above link, or view a brief summary of the main findings below:

You can also still access our paper on the Impact of oropharyngeal dysphagia on healthcare cost and length of stay in hospital: a systematic review is now freely available from BMC Health Services Research.

We were stoked to have been awarded the “2018 Early-career Researcher Award” by the Flinders University College of Nursing and Health Sciences for this paper. This article scores in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric (over 13+ million articles) and ranks #8 of 4,491 papers ever published by BMC Health Services Research. (In other words, a lot of people have been reading and talking about this paper – please feel free to join the conversation on our twitter feed @swallowneurolab.

You can also read more about it on the Flinders University News and Sebastian gave an interview for Nursing Review.
