DisDAT Website

DisDAT logoDisDAT is a website intended to help professionals identify distress cues in people who because of cognitive impairment or physical illness have severely limited communication.
The DISDAT assessment tool originated in Learning disabilities but has extended its use to palliative care, paediatrics, brain injury and stroke units, dementia and in more recent times general acute service areas for patients with reduced communication abilities.  To view DisDat please click here.
