$0.00 Medical science increasingly recognizes the vital link between physical and behavioral health. Physical illnesses like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and musculoskeletal pain are associated with behavioral illnesses. Likewise, individuals with behavioral illnesses such as depression or anxiety disorder are also more likely to experience poor physical health. These findings indicate that primary HCPs would benefit from additional support in investigating and diagnosing behavioral illnesses in individuals with chronic physical conditions.

$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.

  • CCMC - General
$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.

$0.00 Activity descriptionEnd of life (EOL) is a frequent occurrence in the long-term care (LTC) setting as approximately one-third of nursing home residents die within one year of admission. Unfortunately, despite the frequency of death in LTC, there has been less focus on the EOL experience than in other sites of death.

$0.00 In the United States, racial/ethnic minority, rural, and low-income populations continue to experience suboptimal access to and inequity of health care despite decades of recognition of health disparities and policy mandates to eliminate them. There are a number of disease states with recognized disparities and many health care interventions designed to achieve health equity fall short due to gaps in knowledge and translation.
