What is IDDSI?
The International Dysphagia Diet Standardization Initiative (IDDSI) was created as a global safety initiative to standardize modified diets for those with dysphagia. IDDSI has more levels than the National Dysphagia Diet and can be better customized to a patient’s needs. Transitioning to IDDSI at your facility requires total buy-in and support from the whole team. Ready to get started? We’re here to help.

Build and Optimize Your LinkedIn Profile
Why should dietitians have a LinkedIn profile? For some, LinkedIn is viewed as a platform to help you find a job, or to help recruiters find you when you are looking for a job. The key is to build and enhance your profile often so that when you are ready to job seek, you’ve ensured your profile is fully optimized for recruiters to find you and want to select you for the job. Need a refresher?

Is your profile TRULY optimized?
Do you know how to customize your profile URL? (3:20)
Headline vs Job Title, are they the same? Technically yes, but it’s a place to add something extra to differentiate (4:40)
Your summary: A personal mission statement, give a really good idea of who you are and WHY you are doing what you do (6:00)
Give your page a purpose. What is your purpose? Meet new people, find a new position, find a new employee.

Everything You Need to Know About Indirect Calorimetry
Despite being the gold standard for estimating energy needs, indirect calorimetry is rarely used by most dietitians. In fact, indirect calorimetry is often reserved for complex clinical situations or for ultra-tailored nutrition prescriptions. The usefulness of indirect calorimetry in most clinical settings is still debated. Join us for the low-down on this elusive technique.
