Thank you for your fantastic work on the discourse data & for being a valued member of the . I so enjoyed working with you & our other RAs. I reckon I learnt as much from our discussions as I taught. The future of aphasia research & rehab is bright 🌟

Quality healthcare hinges on effective communication. It's not optional. Need to equip future doctors to resist a 'one size fits all' approach, to recognise systems that devalue time for communication & practical strategies to ensure accessible communication is the norm

Q4 1) Operationalise what good communication looks like 2) Clinical leaders should model effective communication & give feedback to others 3) Set goals to mitigate against the consequences of poor healthcare communication: risk, safety, adverse events

The multidisciplinary team often assume that speechies have "perfect" conversations with patients 100% of the time. Therefore they feel like they shouldn't bother or should wait for the "expert"

Q3 The challenge is to properly resource patient-centred care and place an explicit value on communicating well with patients. The reality is that means more time is needed, more staff, more staff training, enshrining communication in the team meetings/ward rounds

A busy, pressured, under-resourced clinical setting almost primes health professionals to prioiritse 'easy' conversations or to superficially engage in uncomfortable/challenging conversations

Patients feeling overlooked and uninvited is the absolute opposite of what health professionals & services intend. Huge disconnect
