STARTED: Dysphagia Research Standards

The Started Framework, which stands for STAndards for Rigor and TransparEncy in Dysphagia Research, has been developed over the past year as a collaboration across 6 dysphagia research labs.  The tool involves a series of questions that can be used to help evaluate rigor and transparency of dysphagia research designs using a variety of different measurement techniques.  The tool can be used not only in the task of literature review, but also for helping researchers to plan their studies, and for manuscript reviewers to use when evaluating articles for publication.
