Thickener or water? 2000 675 Sandra Robinson

Recommending thickened drinks is a common practice by speech and language therapists / speech pathologists when supporting people with dysphagia.

I recently used this video to stimulate debate amongst caregivers. Opinions vary!

What role does thickener play in dysphagia management now and is this changing? How do our patients / clients feel about it? What do caregivers and relatives think of it? What more can industry do to support patients / clients and health care professionals?

Let me know your thoughts whether you’re someone with dysphagia, a health care professional, or relative.
