Dysphagia & Texture Modification eLearning Module4 Credits
This course has been developed in partnership with eLearning For You, Nestle Health Science and Sophie Murray, subject matter expert from Sunrise Senior Living. Together, we aim to raise the profile of dysphagia to prevent serious choking incidents or malnourishment.
This course is suitable for all locations providing texture modified food within the health and social care industry, including homecare, care homes, nursing homes and hospitals. To ensure safety of the individuals in your care, any staff member assisting clients to eat will benefit from completing this course.
Sophie Murray states that IDDSI will help caregivers gain a better understanding of dysphagia because, in her own words: "...if you have an understanding of particle size you are naturally going to increase your understanding around swallow and choking. However, this is entirely dependent on having the correct training."
