Swallowing disorders are in many cases serious and complex. Their management needs to be considered from several perspectives. Multidisciplinary daytime hospitalisation (MDH) for swallowing disorders is an appropriate solution for many patients: a single day is sufficient for a complete check-up and the initiation of a therapeutic programme. A Ministerial Direction (15 June 2010), the content of which is discussed in this article, lays out the conditions of this approach. Our institution (Regional University Hospital of Tours) has substantial experience of MDH for swallowing disorders and here we take a look at the organisational, human, medical, and financial aspects of this activity.
