Providing Quality Care for Adults With Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
This activity will provide learners with an overview of clinical considerations in adults with IDD and improve communication skills and practices that can better guide treatment choices to address the specific needs of these individuals. Learners will take a closer look at existing bias, stigma and discrimination toward these individuals and learn strategies to address these issues in practice. Lastly, the value of improved interprofessional team collaboration between health care professionals (HCPs), caregivers and direct support professionals will be discussed.
