Bulletin 188: Care homes - Assisting people with swallowing difficulties

This bulletin and supporting resources look at the use of thickeners, particularly in the care home setting. It does discuss the use of the current dysphagia diet food texture descriptors, which may be changing over the next 18 months to the IDDSI (International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative) http://iddsi.org/

We will review and update the bulletin further in due course.
