Tid og sted: 30. okt. 2018 13:30 - 14:30, Gamle Festal

Antallet personer i Norge som påvirkes av og lever med demens og afasi i sitt daglige liv, er betydelig og forventes å øke. Mange mennesker i Norge er to- eller flerspråklige, og vi vet relativt lite om hva som skjer når man som flerspråklig rammes av demens og afasi. Videre trenges det mer kunnskap om hvordan bruken av tolk virker inn på kommunikasjonen mellom helsepersonell og pasienter.

I dette seminaret deler forskere og helsefaglig personale bidrag til å øke denne kunnskapen.
