The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) and the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) together support May 1, 2019, as the official launch date for International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) implementation in the United States. The announcement was made at the Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE 2018) in Washington DC.
Recognizing that total IDDSI implementation will take time and effort, the AND and ASHA are fully committed to supporting its members during their transition. Members are encouraged to frequently check AND's website and ASHA's website for additional educational opportunities/resources.
