Aim: We examine the use of Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) to help improve communication, interactions and knowledge transfer between people with PIMD, staff and family carers. Method: A shared review of the videos of both staff and family member was undertaken to provide the opportunity for the staff and family member to discuss communication, interaction and sharing information. Results: VIG improved the knowledge and understanding of staff working with individuals with PIMD in the first instance. The sharing of the videos allowed shared perspectives of the person with PIMD between the staff and the family members. Conclusion: VIG is a practical method that can be used within services to improve communication, interactions and knowledge transfer between individuals with PIMD, staff and family members.
