  5. 5. Eating difficulties in elderly, focusing on patients with stroke

    University dissertation from Department of Nursing, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Author : Albert Westergren; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to describe eating difficulties and interventions to improve eating among elderly patients, especially those with stroke, to make comparisons between patients with dysphagia and those without (Papers I & II), those with and without assisted eating (Paper IV), and to analyse the relation between eating difficulties, nutritional status (Papers II-V), pressure ulcers (Paper IV), length of hospital stay and levels of independent living when discharged (Paper V). Eating difficulties were mainly assessed using structured observations. READ MORE
