Using AAC to communicate with medical staff (summary)

What was the aim of the study? The study aimed to find out about the experiences of people who use AAC in communicating with primary care health professionals (e.g.GPs).

Why was the paper written? There is evidence that people with disabilities are less likely than the population in general to use primary or preventative health care services. The authors wanted to find out about AAC users experiences of non-hospital based healthcare and identify any barriers to effective communication and strategies used to overcome these.
