Supporting bilingual people with aphasia in their rehabilitation journey: Where are we now?
Bilingual people with aphasia often begin their rehabilitation journey by being admitted to hospital, following a stroke. This presentation will provide an overview of research exploring some of the complex issues that arise for bilingual people with aphasia and their treating health professionals in hospital settings.
