New study from Turkey

Validity and reliability of the Turkish version of GUSS

Earlier this year, Ebru Karaca Umay and her colleagues published a paper on the validity and reliability of the adapted Turkish version of GUSS.

After the translation into Turkish by 2 neurorehabilitation specialists, the screen was tested on 113 patients in the early phase of stroke. The Turkish GUSS had good internal consistency, very good reliability between raters and a good correlation with FEES evaluations (for detection of aspiration risk), which is considered a gold standard in assessment of oropharyngeal dysphagia.

You can now find the Turkish GUSS here on our blog!
