Abstract

It is common for people with aphasia, whether in the hospital, a nursing facility, or at home, to rely on nursing assistants for their health and personal care. This study presents results from a unique program to teach nursing assistant students about aphasia and communication strategies that is co-instructed by a person with aphasia and an SLP. Comparison of pre- and posttest results from 168 participating students indicates that nursing assistant students improved their knowledge of aphasia after participating in this 75-minute module. This has implications for both nursing assistants and people with aphasia.
