About Dysphagia Care

A brief introduction to IDDSI for clinicians:

The dysphagia care training course can be taken on laptops, tablets and smart phones

Dysphagia Care was set up by Catriona Lysaght and Alex Carey, in response to the growing demand for dysphagia care training. Both Catriona and Alex provide dysphagia training on a daily basis to care staff, nursing staff, and their Speech and Language Therapy colleagues, and between them have a wealth of knowledge and experience to draw from.

The rollout of the IDDSI framework has meant a surge in demand for dysphagia care training. While Catriona and Alex are confident in using the new framework, they know that others aren’t. That’s why they have included a full explanation and demonstration of every level of the IDDSI framework in this course, as well as all the other dysphagia care skills needed by nursing and care staff.
