Event description

Katherine previously led a local augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) service in Gloucestershire; part of the adult speech and language therapy team. AAC, or communication aids, are external devices that support people who cannot speak clearly enough to get their message across. In 2016, she secured funding from Health Education England (HEE) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to complete a Clinical Doctoral Fellowship.

Katherine's project aims to develop a greater understanding about why people do and do not use AAC devices and how they view success with using them. In this seminar, she will talk about her experience of involving patients and members of the public who use AAC to support them to communicate and the impact that has had on her research.

This seminar is open to interested health professionals, researchers and public involvement staff in the West of England, as well as members of the public.
