Balancing Risks in Diet Selection
In this session, you’ll learn the key factors to consider when selecting the appropriate diet for your patients with dysphagia. We’ll focus on the type and timing of thickened liquids while comparing common thickeners based on the evidence. We’ll present options for mitigating risks of negative health-related sequelae, and we’ll review factors related to complying with diet modification and carry-over recommendations to home or supported-living environments. Finally, we’ll provide tips to incorporating real foods into modified diets safely.
You will be able to:
- weigh the risks and benefits of fluid selection for your patients with dysphagia relative to understanding the differences between available products
- educate patients on how best to mitigate risks for negative dysphagia-related health sequelae
- educate patients on how to incorporate real foods into a modified diet for improved quality of life
