Webinar Series: Health Care and the ADA - Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities
from the Pacific ADA Center, member of the ADA National Network


People with disabilities represent over 20 percent of the American population. Like other marginalized groups, people with disabilities have significant health disparities and face barriers to health care. Despite the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act over thirty years ago, health care providers report being unprepared and uncomfortable treating patients with disabilities. To address this training gap, people with disabilities partnered with disability researchers, health educators, and healthcare advocates to create a list of six essential competencies to providing quality health care to patients with disabilities. Addressing core disability competencies in health care education will prepare the future healthcare workforce to provide quality healthcare to all patients.
