During a recent lecture in Madison, Wisconsin, we had a lively discussion on procedures used in video fluoroscopy. Of particular interest were our interactions on the issues of agreement in what we see, and how we plan our treatment based on these observations. Following this discussion, a workshop participant told me about her study group that once a month focused on their skills in videofluoroscopic interpretation. The next day she brought me a copy of the grid sheet used to evaluate reliability in videofluoroscopic interpretation. She went on to mention that discussion of cases presented served as the evidence that participants were peer reviewing their practice. Intrigued by this concept, and knowing that such groups end as fast as they begin (often for reasons ofpoor attendance), I pressed for more information. I was given the name of Amy Mudlaff, the coordinator of the Swallow Diagnostic Case Review program at Sinai Samaritan Medical Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Amy has graciously agreed to write about her experience with their case review program. Interactions such as those Amy describes are an important part of a good quality assurance program. Thanks to Amy for sharing her thoughts.
