June is National Dysphagia Awareness Month. While over 1 million Americans are diagnosed with dysphagia every year, there is still a lot of misunderstanding as it relates to the condition. Dysphagia can be a challenging diagnosis that often leaves patients, caregivers and clinicians looking for answers for support.
It’s important to recognize the champions that are involved in the improvement and recovery of these patients. Registered Dietitians, Speech Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Food Service Staff and Clinicians all play a huge role in this process. Understanding how each role can assist in the successful management of the condition for the improvement of both their physical and mental wellbeing is a top priority.
Medtrition prides itself supporting both patients and clinicians in this journey. We have a wide variety of products to help meet the nutritional needs of this population in a flavorful and dignified way. Cafe Puree, Medtrition Cafe and ProSource Gelatein can all easily assist in the nutritional improvement of this patient population.
