Recommendations for dysphagia management may include dietary modifications, postures, maneuvers, behavioral strategies, exercise regimens, or alternative means of feeding (non-oral) — in any number of combinations (Low, Wyles, Wilkinson, & Sainsbury, 2001). Patient adherence refers to the patient's ability to follow recommendations provided by his or her healthcare provider (Martin, Williams, Haskard, & Dimatteo, 2005). In order to ensure avoidance of negative health-related consequences including malnutrition, dehydration, and aspiration pneumonia, it is critical that patients adhere to recommendations for management of their dysphagia (Low et al., 2001). Several studies have suggested a high rate of patient non-adherence, ranging from 50 to 68%, relative to dysphagia recommendations for thickened liquids and exercise regimens (Leiter & Windsor, 1996; Mortensen et al., 2015; Rosenvinge & Starke, 2005; Shinn et al., 2013).
