|Janne Schack and the Dorset Healthcare NHS Trust Dysphagia training team
|"Janne Schack, Dysphagia lead and the dysphagia training team were instrumental in implementing the IDDSI descriptors 10 years ago. Without the dysphagia training team taking a lead on updating the community hospitals, training the team, changing the literature etc there is no doubt the community team would have not been able to implement IDDSI so completely and sufficiently within our Dorset Healthcare NHS adult community SALT service. They worked tirelessly to get IDDSI implemented for us and the responsibility fell to them to make sure we were compliant and fully informed, it was a big task for them and they did this diligently, passionately and with enthusiasm."
