$0.00 PWID often experience restricted independence due to limited communicative abilities, which can be challenging for HCPs and caregivers. HCPs need to be aware of each individual’s perspective and adapt their communicative behaviors to accommodate the unique needs of PWID. Decreasing barriers to effective patient-centered communication with PWID will increase the delivery of meaningful health care, build rapport and lead to the development of trusted relationships, which should increase perceived quality of care.

$0.00 HCPs often lack experience and/or training in communicating with PWID. To help facilitate effective patient-centered communication, HCPs require clear guidelines and competency development on this vulnerable patient population. The R.A.F.T. (Respect, Accommodation, Follow-Up, Time) training was developed to provide an evidence-based model for effective communication interactions between HCPs, PWID and caregivers. R.A.F.T. was designed for HCPs across the continuum of care, from those who schedule appointments and welcome patients at reception to those involved in ongoing care.

$0.00 HCPs are encountering an aging I/DD population as people with I/DD are living longer, healthier lives. Some of these individuals have environmental and psychosocial needs that may not be met by traditional geriatric care. HCPs are sometimes unfamiliar with how to assess and treat cognitive decline and dementia experienced by the aging population with I/DD.

$0.00 Adults with I/DD face many health disparities. They often have complex or difficult to diagnose medical conditions, they may have difficulty accessing health care due to physical or financial barriers and they may have difficulties expressing their symptoms and pain. Few community health care providers are experienced in providing services for adults with I/DD, and medical or dental programs provide minimal disability-related training.

$0.00 Although important steps have been taken over the past decade to meet the health care needs of individuals with IDD and to care for them across their lifespan, all too often HCPs receive little training and have little experience in meeting the needs of this underserved population. Individuals with IDD may have difficulty accessing person-centered, timely physical and behavioral health care due to physical, cognitive and/or financial barriers. Specific challenges with communication are often perceived as barriers to the provision of care.
