This article is an integrative review of the literature aiming to gather and synthesize the results of studies and research in order to know the productions of scientific knowledge related to the performance of the multidisciplinary team for the dysphagic person care in the hospital environment. The research was performed during the month of November of 2017, using BIREME, PUBMED and SCIELO databases, in Portuguese, English and Spanish.
