CSNM supports the International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative
CSNM is gratified by the tremendous work that was completed to date toward the IDDSI. We are overwhelmed by the group of volunteers from diverse professions including nutrition & dietetics, medicine, speech pathology, occupational therapy, nursing, patient safety, engineering, food science & technology from around the world who came together on the project.
The development of the international standardized terminology and definitions for texture modified foods and thickened liquids for persons with dysphagia will have a positive outcome for our members who are Nutrition Managers toward improved resident and patient care on a daily basis by this initiative.
