The project was implemented in two surgical units at the University of Alabama-Birmingham. The aim of this study was to evaluate the facilitators and barriers to successful implementation so that Virtual ACE could be disseminated to other hospitals.

Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) is a common and potentially life-threatening toxicity of radiotherapy (RT) for patients with head and neck cancer (HNC).
