Concurrent Session – The IDDSI Round Up: Strategies for (Leading the Charge for) IDDSI Implementation

Canada announced the launch of the International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) www.IDDSI.org implementation in January 2019. National adoption of the IDDSI standardized terminology and definitions to describe texture modified foods and thickened liquids aims to promote and improve safety for individuals with dysphagia of all ages, in all care settings and all cultures not only within Canada but worldwide. This session will highlight the details of the IDDSI framework http://iddsi.org/framework/, detailed definitions and strategies for implementation. The session will also include hands-on experience for IDDSI testing methods and discussions about mapping current diet terminologies to IDDSI. So, please join the Round-Up and help lead the charge for IDSSI implementation!
