Have you implemented IDDSI yet? The date for implementation of the new IDDSI guidelines was 1st May. Key issues to consider include:
Documentation of the IDDSI textures and thickened fluids in your clinical software and in kitchen documentation
Training for care and kitchen staff on the differences between the Easy to Chew and the Soft and Bite Sized Diets
How have your residents currently receiving a soft diet been classified in the new guidelines? You will need support from your speech pathologist
Our Meal Plans for Older People Manual has been revised for IDDSI. If you have purchased a version over the past 12 months, you will receive an updated version. For more information or to purchase the manual, click here.
