Exploring access to Speech and Language Therapy for Welsh speaking survivors of stroke
Investigator: Katherine Broomfield & Carys Williams
Funder:Stroke Association, Wales
This project is being funded by the Stroke Association, Wales and being carried out in collaboration with Cardiff Metropolitan University (CMU). The aim of the project is to explore the lived experience of people who need speech and language therapy for aphasia following stroke to inform further research and service development.
Katherine Broomfield (BSLTRU) and Carys Williams (CMU) are recruiting people who have aphasia following stroke and who use Welsh as their language of choice for everyday interactions. They will interview people to find out about their experiences of speech and language therapy (SLT) provision and intervention following stroke in individuals who require provision and intervention in Welsh.
This project will help to identify barriers and facilitators to receiving support speech and language therapy for aphasia in Welsh following stroke from the reported experience of individuals and their families/carers/communication partner.
