Description

A soft diet is often required to protect surgical sites or prevent prosthetic complications. Often heavily restrictive diets lead to non-compliance, frustration and increased risk of post-operative complications. Without careful attention to patient preferences, and knowledge of the nutrition and texture interplay in soft diets, our recommendations can lack the guidance to provide a more targeted approach to improve wound healing and patient wellbeing.

A new food category in medical nutrition will be discussed as it offers a novel solution to the crunchy cravings our patients often experience. A more guided approach to food selection during the post-operative period will be proposed that attempts to optimize wound healing, reduce unwanted weight loss and improve patient confidence in the process.

Objectives

  1. Understand the consequences of a soft diet on nutritional health and psychosocial well-being.
  2. Describe key nutrients necessary in the diet to optimize oral wound healing.
  3. Review transitional food use for people on a soft diet.
  4. Understand a new dietary protocol that helps a patient cope with a mandated soft diet and potentially optimizes surgical outcomes.
