Video of the Week: The Role of AAC in Effective Patient Provider Communication
If you’re in a healthcare setting, you probably have noticed the increased attention to communication issues between healthcare providers and individuals who are ‘communication vulnerable.’ As all of us well know, people with AAC needs are certainly in that category. Many of us have worked with AAC clients who’ve had negative experiences communicating with healthcare providers in emergency situations, hospital visits, medical procedures, and just routine preventative care. Our featured video this week is on The Role of AAC in Effective Patient Provider Communication by John Costello, Director of the Augmentative Communication Program at Boston Children’s Hospital. The presentation is part of a larger series organized by Patient Provider Communication network and Sarah Blackstone.
