Nutritional and hydration interventions for people with dysphagia.

Nursing Standard 2024 April 4
Dysphagia (swallowing difficulties) is particularly common in older people and is associated with various health conditions. Dysphagia affects an individual's ability to eat and drink, and can have a significant effect on their clinical outcomes and quality of life. This article explores ways in which nurses can support people with dysphagia to minimise the effects of the condition and enhance their quality of life. The authors examine the role of commonly used strategies such as dietary texture modification and thickened fluids that aim to optimise nutrition and hydration. However, some of the management options for dysphagia do not have a strong evidence base, so nurses should consider whether any dietary restrictions are proportionate and ensure that their benefits outweigh the risks.
