Abstract

Chronic gastroesophageal reflux is a common contributing factor to dysphagia. Consequently, dysphagia treatment often includes discussion and education regarding behavioral management strategies and dietary modification to prevent reflux, including the provision of written materials to encourage follow-through. The goal of the current project was to revise and update the existing evidence-based pamphlet of behavioral modifications to manage reflux being used at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), including the addition of non-pharmaceutical beverage and homeopathic alternatives to reduce reflux and soothe gastrointestinal (GI) tissues. A scoping literature search was conducted during the period from June 2021 to March 2022 via PubMed and Google Scholar. Articles were screened to include only those specifically related to the above-referenced purpose and exclude pediatric related and non-English articles. Relevant data was pulled from the articles and included in the pamphlet, in sections related to physical adjustments, mealtime behaviors, dietary considerations, known reflux triggers, and other behavioral modifications. The existing document, including relevant research, was reviewed and updated in a format that is patient friendly. Results and drafted handout will be presented and discussed.
