August 9, 2022 – The Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (ADDPC) is proud to announce the release of their new literature review “COVID-19 Impact on the Disability Community”. This literature review shows how the disability community has been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
COVID-19 Impact on the Disability Community Review
Primary Care Provider Continuing Medical Education Program
The Primary Care Provider Continuing Medical Education (CME) Program is aimed at providing primary care providers, particularly family physicians and nurse practitioners in Arizona, with continuing medical education related to more equitable and inclusive health care for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD).
With insight and guidance from a diverse group of community partners that includes self-advocates, subject matter experts in supported decision-making, guardianship, and health care for underserved communities, the project team has developed a free Continuing Medical Education program with three modules that focus on different aspects of providing medical care for people with disabilities. The three topics covered by the CME program are:
Understanding Current Health Inequities among People with I/DD and the History of Marginalization
Consent and Capacity as it Relates to People with I/DD
Applying Supported Decision-Making in the Clinical Context
This project is produced by Sonoran Center for Excellence in Disabilities and is funded by a grant from the Arizona Developmental Disabilities Planning Council
