Brief description Hospital patients with communication disabilities are up to three times more likely than other patients to experience preventable, harmful patient safety incidents. We will develop (a) a theoretically sound and evidence based framework that helps to prevent and manage patient safety incidents, and (b) a Clinical Audit Tool for Communication in Hospital (CATCH) to improve patient safety for adults with little or no speech. This information will reduce costs associated with adverse events, and improve patient care.
