Supported Conversation for Adults with Aphasia: Making Patient Education Communicatively Accessible
When health information is presented and discussed with patients who have normal communication abilities, the evidence indicates that this information is often poorly understood and if it is understood, it is often forgotten. The Teach-Back Method is an evidence-based strategy that can improve knowledge transfer between health-care practitioners and patients. In this webinar, The Teach-Back Method will be explored and adaptations using SCA will be demonstrated, to increase communicative access to health information.
