This article is the results of a research collaboration of the LLMRC and in-house researcher Walter Wittich from the School of Optometry, Université de Montréal, conducted between 2015-2021. The article presents the clinical utility of the interRAI Community Health Assessment (CHA) and its Deafblind Supplement (DbS) for the identification and characterizing of adults with visual and/or hearing impairments. The contribution of our very own Social Worker, Cathy McGraw, was crucial in making this project and publication possible. 

Well done Cathy and team!
