European Dysphagia Council


The European Dysphagia Council (EDC) is an interest group comprising professionals involved in various aspects of dysphagia, including treatment, management, and research. The EDC was conceived by the Board of the European Society of Swallowing Disorders in 2022, and its inaugural meeting took place in Leuven, Belgium, in September 2022. The EDC is currently in its foundational phase and already has representatives from 23 European countries. However, we are actively seeking members from the remaining unrepresented European countries.

Want to represent your country?
If you are interested in representing your country or know a colleague who might be interested, please contact Dr. Padraig O’Leary at with the subject “EDC representative [country name] and explaining why you’d like to, and be qualified to represent your country.
