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?

WACRH, 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.
