Irene Campbell-Taylor is a consultant to the Human Neuropathology Neurochemistry Laboratory of the Clarke Institute in Toronto, Ontario, and the senior clinical manager of the Children and Youth Division of Surrey Place Center in Toronto. She has a unique perspective on the management of dysphagia, based in the science of neuroanatomy and nutrition.
The most superficial review of recent news, journalism, and even novels reveals a growing concern about the effects of managed care on the health of hospital and nursing home patients in the United States. In Canada, we are now experiencing the encroachment of the same trend toward cost cutting at the expense of what is, oftentimes, necessary treatment. The Province of Ontario has a refinement on this theme: legislation that promotes increased costs, waste of resources, and diminished health in long-term care patients, because of adherence to standard practices and a lack of understanding of the specific requirements of the elderly and of persons with developmental disabilities (DD) in long-term care.
