From our series Working Together To Help You Where You Live, this pictographic resource is designed to facilitate a conversational partnership between health care practitioners and people with aphasia. It is also ideal for people with limited English language skills. It is based on the techniques of Supported Conversation for Adults with Aphasia™ (SCA™), developed by the Aphasia Institute.
We have included two resources in this package:
Heart Disease and You
Preventing and Managing Heart Disease
The Heart Disease and You resource contains the following topics:
- What is heart disease?
- Heart disease and heart attack warning signs
- Heart disease and heart attack: what to do
The Preventing and Managing Heart Disease resource contains the following topics:
- How to lower your risk of heart disease and stroke
- Managing heart disease
NOTE: Resource content is gathered by consulting experts on this topic. To the best of our knowledge, this information is accurate. Although we are not experts on this topic, we are experts in how to communicate information to people who know more than they can say (i.e. people with aphasia or other communication challenges).
