Oropharyngeal dysphagia (OD) is a disorder that can have devastating and long lasting effects on a person’s medical, mental and psychosocial well-being, thus negatively impacting quality of life. There is currently no validated dysphagia-specific quality of life instrument in Norway. This project aims to evaluate the psychometric properties of the culturally adapted Norwegian version of SWAL-QOL (Nor-SWAL-QOL).
