Every day, clinicians face the difficult task of determining a patient’s most appropriate diet texture within a system that offers little to no direction as to which foods belong in which texture level. The National Dysphagia Diet system offers what you are looking for-a standardized method for determining which food belongs (and which don’t) in each diet level. And while many of us may realize this is a useful diet system, the task of training staff and changing methods is a daunting one.
This recording is designed to answer your questions about the standardized diet and the process of transitioning your facility. In addition to learning exactly which foods are allowed and avoided at each diet level, you will receive numerous helpful handouts and charts depicting the information in an easy to read format. You will also learn about the benefits, challenges, and lasting effects of transitioning to the National Dysphagia Diet system. And lastly, you will be taken through the step by step process to follow in order to have a successful transition in your facility.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing and passing the on-line post-test evaluation).
