Did you come from Townsville?

Our isolated geography, a warm climate, having a lot of infrastructure for disaster management (cyclones, floods, fires), a population who obey rules, and a great health care system backed by strong politicians have all helped.

Oops, sorry. Believe it or not, I’d forgotten about that. We have had 0 community transmissions for so long.

Me too. It’s the curiosity that they show that they may not show elsewhere. For some, it’s like waking up.

Fantastic for aged care. Now need to upskill our Speech pathologists in service provision to that sector.

I also like Rosemary’s intro session. Also 1. Ask some ‘experienced’ people with aphasia to come for coffee too?? 2. Invite care partners for a session?? 3. Ask them to draw what stroke is and what aphasia means to them as a trigger for a discussion about it.

Ping Thx everyone. We often think that the medical model is dominant but the ICF has had a major influence.

It’s variable. If you’d like me to ask this on the AAA Facebook page, I can.

If the people with aphasia didn’t have signs of depression or anxiety, these great discussion prompts should be part of routine SLT practice. Working with psychologists in this area could also be routine. Loved the positive question first. See PTG article by Sue Sherratt.

It’s interesting in itself that you don’t use these terms. It’s not quite a direct translation to the terms you suggest. Medical and social are more like philosophies. You seem to use the ICF terms?

I’ll pass on the compliment to Alexia Rohde who developed it as her PhD.
