Disability Awareness Training for Healthcare Professionals
Healthcare professionals need to be aware of disability issues to serve many of their clients effectively and protect their rights as individuals:
- Over 20 percent of people live with disabilities.
- Today, Disability rights and discrimination issues are not part of standard medical education or licensing.
- The COVID pandemic has revealed serious problems such as illegal healthcare rationing, lack of evidence based prioritization for vaccines, and the rights of patients to be supported by their caregivers.
We are bringing together disability awareness courses, presentations, and other materials for healthcare professionals with the long term goal of making substantial disability awareness training a part of medical education and licensing.
