Communicative Access Measures for Stroke

Helping you measure communicative accessibility at your organization.

START HERE - How it works

We have developed three surveys that can assist you to evaluate the degree to which your facility or unit is communicatively accessible for people with stroke and aphasia.

The Aphasia Institute is making these surveys available to you at no cost; however, there is a condition related to sharing your anonymized data in aggregated fashion. This will enable you to see your relative standing with others once enough data has been entered.

CAMS can be used to help develop:

  • Health equity plans

  • Accreditation plans

  • Service quality improvement initiatives

  • Continuing education need assessments


1. CAMS1: Administrator Survey

This survey targets the organizational and/or system level policies and procedures.

2. CAMS2: Staff Survey

This survey targets the attitudes and practices of staff who provide service.

3. CAMS3: Patient Satisfaction Survey

This survey targets service recipients and is specifically designed in pictographic format to support comprehension of the questions and to facilitate methods of responding that get around the language barrier.

The form below is for managers using CAMS for the first time, who wish to commission a set of surveys for their facility/unit.

NOTE: Do not complete the form below if you are aware that a previous manager from your department/unit has set up a CAMS account in the past. If this is the case, or if you are unsure, contact the CAMS Support <> for orientation/support in your account set-up.

NOTE: Within the CAMS system, one email address can only have one user account that is associated with only one facility/unit at a time.
