New data reveals concerning gap in post-stroke care for people living in rural and remote areas

2 September 2022

PhD Candidate Lisa Anemaat from UQ's Queensland Aphasia Research Centre featured on WIN News discussing new research into post-stroke care for people living with aphasia in rural and remote areas.

“Aphasia can affect their spoken language, it can affect their auditory comprehension of language that is said to them, it can affect their reading and even their writing,” Mrs Anemaat said.

“This research is looking at specifically what are the unmet needs for the clinicians working in the regional and remote areas.

“The onus is on us to help improve these services, so that people who have aphasia have access to the care that they need.”
