The use of Blended Diet with Enteral Feeding Tubes
The British Dietetic Association (BDA) has published the updated version of their blended diets policy statement, which has been created by a specially convened group of expert dietitians from their paediatric and PEN groups. The new policy reflects the latest evidence and is designed to support dietitians to make safe decisions about using blended diets in conjunction with their patients and their families.
The working group will now be updating the accompanying toolkit, which will include advice to dietitians about how to update and improve their own workplace blended diet policies.
PINNT acknowledges that many patients and families wish to use this method and we strongly support their voices being heard and encourage people to read the new policy statement and speak to their own medical team members for ongoing discussions.
