Description: The IDDSI Framework, Detailed Definitions and Testing Methods are the accepted standard of practice in the United States. A consistent theme for a successful implementation is to learn and follow the guidelines of the IDDSI Framework. In addition, most questions regarding if a food or drink is safe to serve can be answered by performing the IDDSI Testing Methods. Recognizing why an item does not pass and making corrections to create products that do pass is key.

This session will provide an opportunity for participants to have a hands-on experience working with the IDDSI Testing Methods for foods. Come to this session to:

  • Experience hands-on testing of IDDSI friendly texture modified foods
  • Learn about best practices for establishing standardized dysphagia diet orders
  • Walk away with functional solutions for IDDSI implementation
  • Most of all, play and have fun!
Join this interactive, hands-on workshop to enhance your knowledge of IDDSI’s benefits, fine-tune your IDDSI Food Testing skills, discover solutions to your common concerns and gain best practices for sustaining your IDDSI efforts.

** Provided to all attendees is the new IDDSI Flow Test Funnel, updated testing reference card and a printed copy of the IDDSI Audit Tools.
**Prerequisite for this workshop is a good understanding of the IDDSI Framework and Testing Methods.
