Abstract

The aim of this study was to explore the experiences of patients with cerebral palsy and complex communication needs (CCN) in hospital. Ten adults with cerebral palsy and CCN participated in semistructured interviews about their recent hospital experiences. Along with identifying barriers to successful communication, the participants suggested strategies to improve the hospital communication experience. The findings are discussed in relation to (1) preparing adults with cerebral palsy and CCN for communication in hospital communication and (2) training and supporting nurses in effectively communicating with these patients
