Belgian society for swallowing 
disorders VZW/ASBL

Why BSSD ?

The scientific knowledge of dysphagia has made great progress over the past 25 years, with a significant impact on clinical practice. Nevertheless, it’s important that everyone involved in the care of people with swallowing problems must continue to work to increase the knowledge to improve the quality of life of our patients.

The Belgian Society for Swallowing Disorders was founded in 2014 with the aim of promoting cooperation between colleagues, disciplines and geographical regions. The implementation of evidence-based practice in the evaluation and treatment of people with dysphagia should improve the efficiency and effectiveness of our services. In addition, the role of research as a cornerstone for our discipline is encouraged, with emphasis on clinical relevance.
