Welcome to our survey entitled "Swallowing and Parkinson's Disease"
Swallowing and eating difficulties are common for individuals with PD, particularly as PD progresses. Swallowing and eating difficulties can impact feelings of safety, social relationships, and quality of life. Understanding the experience pertaining to swallowing difficulties and effective assessments and treatments from the patient’s perspective is of great importance. Thus, the objective of the present study is to deepen our understanding about swallowing difficulties from the perspective of people living with Parkinson's Disease.
The information you provide will benefit individuals with PD and carers as well as treatment providers so that they can better help you. We encourage your participation, but want to emphasize that your participation is completely voluntary and that all information that you provide will be kept strictly confidential.
The data collection for this report will conclude on June 15, 2017.
