Abstract/Summary People with impaired communication are at risk of unrecognized psychiatric or medical disorders. Changes in behaviour may result from remediable physical or psychiatric pathology, and/or other bio-psycho-socio-spiritual factors. People often present with a complex interplay of bio-psycho-socio-spiritual factors. Detailed psychiatric and physical assessment is essential.
