CLINICAL ASSESSMENT OF DYSPHAGIA IN NEURODEGENERATION (cadn)
The CADN is a reliable, valid, brief, quantifiable, and easily deployed assessment of swallowing in neurodegenerative disease. CADN comprises two parts, an anamnesis (part one) and consumption (part two). CADN has 11 items and can be administered and scored in an average of 7 min. Cutoff scores were identified that signal the presence of clinically meaningful dysphagia symptomatology and risk of aspiration.
