INTERNATIONAL DYSPHAGIA DIET STANDARDISATION INITIATIVE (IDDSI)

IDDSI Resources complied by Karen Sheffler, MS, CCC-SLP, BCS-S of SwallowStudy.com

Changing the world to this new dysphagia diet global standard will be no simple feat. However, it is crucial that we set goals for our facilities now in order to meet the implementation goal of January 1, 2019. The safety of people with difficulty swallowing (dysphagia) depends on this standardization. In an effort to make IDDSI easily digestible (pun intended) and to make our transition smoother, I have created this IDDSI resource guide.

The information and videos listed here are freely available, and the publications have always been Open Access. It is the goal of IDDSI to make all learning materials free to aide the global implementation of this framework without the barrier of cost.
