Presentation Summary:

As Canada and the global community move into the “prepare” phase of the Monitor-Aware-Prepare-Adopt process for International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative implementation, many questions have surfaced about how to best prepare and operationalize IDDSI.

This webinar will review how IDDSI testing methods for food textures, liquid thickness can help to map current terminology to IDDSI standards and discuss tools & tips for a smooth implementation based on reports from IDDSI pilots, early adopters and experiences from the countries that have previously implemented national standards.
