Building Capacity to Improve Adult Health Care for Patients with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities

 

With funding from the New Jersey Council on Developmental Disabilities, The Boggs Center developed 2 tiered curricular modules to provide medical professionals with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to appropriately care for patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in adult health care settings.

 

Each module contains 3 distinct curricular components:

    • Grand Rounds presentation - 1 hour presentation focused on improving knowledge and comfort in providing medical care for patients with I/DD

      Recommended presenter: Medical Provider or other content expert with experience providing health care and/or intervention to adults with I/DD

      Target audience: Adult medicine health care providers, residents, and students

    • Case conference presentation - in-depth, facilitated opportunity to discuss and work through a case example

      Recommended facilitator: Medical Provider or other content expert with experience providing healthcare and/or experience teaching residents and students

      Target audience: Health care residents and students

    • Panel presentation - interactive session featuring expertise from self-advocates, family members, and providers and guided by a facilitator

      Recommended facilitator: Adult health care provider with experience providing care to adults with I/DD

      Target audience: Adult health care providers, key stakeholders


A list of relevant resources and tools for further learning is also included for each module, as well as evaluations for each component that can be distributed to learners.
