Abstract

In response to members’ significant concerns and their request for an examination of the evidence relating to oropharyngeal dysphagia assessment, aerosol‐generating procedures (AGPs) and associated risk of COVID‐19 infection, the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) established a COVID‐19 Advisory Group (see the appendix). The group aimed to review the evidence underpinning the current healthcare policies in relation to AGPs, dysphagia assessment, and risk of transmission of and infection with COVID‐19 in response to urgent clinical information needs.
