Missing Voices: Communication difficulties after stroke and traumatic brain injury in Indigenous Australians

We use communication, conversation and yarning in everything we do… so what happens when it goes wrong?

CUCRH, UWA and Edith Cowan University are exploring the topic in order to improve care for Aboriginal patients who experience communication difficulties after being affected by a stroke or other traumatic brain injury.

The first stages of the project have produced a handout to help health staff better manage patients with Acquired Communication Disorders (ACD).

Trekking without a map:the challenges of attracting allied health students to work in rural mental health services.

This presentation highlights the initial research findings of the Gippsland Mental Health Vacation School initiative which was developed to orientate Allied Health students studying in in Melbourne to employment opportunities in Gippsland Victoria, and considers the implications for future action designed to address the shortage of Allied Health practitioners in rural and remote mental health services.

Keith is seeking to meet with service providers and allied health professionals to hear their experiences of recruiting and retaining practitioners who work in the  broad spectrum of mental health service.

He will be available for appointment in Geraldton from Monday 1/9/14 - Wednesday 03/09/14.
