These trainings are intended to educate, inform, and better prepare health care providers on best practices when working with or treating individuals with disabilities.
The MODHC project is targeting to reach a minimum of 100 providers across Missouri who represent the ethnic and racial diversity of Missouri’s population.
The training was created to increase awareness of:
- Health disparities and unique health needs among those with IDD/ML
- Communication barriers including patient-provider interaction and etiquette
- Physical barriers, including accessible, medical diagnostic equipment and facility assessments
