This week's free access article...

Meeting Deaf patients’ communication needs



This article is available in full to non-subscribers until 17 December, just register for free to access.


The authors of this week’s free article identifies that healthcare professionals lack training in how to communicate with Deaf people. The result is communication that is often inappropriate and undertaken without knowledge or understanding of their communication needs.

After reading the article consider:

  • What barriers to healthcare services do Deaf people regularly encounter?
  • What skills do nurses need to care for Deaf people effectively?
  • What would you change in your ward or department to improve the care of Deaf people?

Eileen Shepherd, Clinical Commissioning Editor
