Health Care Provider Resources
Many health care providers are not comfortable serving or communicating with people with disabilities.
HealthMeet and its partners have developed several courses, tools, and programs to help health care providers learn how to better serve and communicate with people with disabilities.
If you have any questions or if you want to incorporate these programs or resources at your practice, contact Kerry Mauger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Include Public Health Competencies in Your Work
HealthMeet and the Association of University Centers on Disabilities developed online courses that overview competencies that public health programs should include to ensure that people with ID are included in programs. Check out these four courses to learn how to incorporate these competencies into your work.
Learn About the Health of People with Disabilities
HealthMeet and the Association of University Centers on Disabilities developed 2 online modules for nursing/medical students about the health of people with intellectual disabilities (ID) and how to communicate with people with ID. These modules provide case studies, links to academic research, and practical tools to future and current health care providers.
