Abstract


This checklist is not intended to measure the cultural and linguistic competence of any given medical home team. Rather, it is designed to provide a structure for discussion and self-examination. It is also designed to facilitate the programmatic and organizational change necessary to respond effectively to culturally defined beliefs, practices, and preferences and the inherent issues they raise in the provision of health care and related services for youth and their families.

AADMD's National Curriculum Initiative in Developmental Medicine

COLLAPSE DETAILSEXPAND DETAILS
Abstract


People with intellectual and developmental disabilities have benefited significantly from the medical advances of the last century. While the life expectancy of the general population has increased by around 30 percent over the past 80 years, the life expectancy of people with intellectual disabilities has increased by 200 percent. Once relegated only to discussions of pediatric medicine, intellectual and developmental disabilities are becoming increasingly more prevalent in the adult patient population. In fact, for the first time in the course of human history, there are now more adults living with intellectual and developmental disabilities than children.

Unfortunately, despite their longer life expectancies, people with ID/DD experience significant disparities in the quality of healthcare that they receive. As a result they are kept in poorer health and can be expected to die at a younger age than their non-disabled cohort. Though there are many factors contributing to this, lack of a physician training is frequently cited as one of the most pervasive. The fact that most medical students and medical residents will never receive adequate training to treat this patient population is a direct result of the lack of focus that medical schools and residency programs have in their curricula regarding patients with ID/DD.

Abstract


Combatting the spread of the Zika virus in the United States and territories as well as helping those who are already affected requires a public health response. This includes the coordination and collaboration of health care systems, providers, and families at the national, state and local levels.

Abstract


This resource is focused on the comprehensive health needs of infants and children affected by Zika Virus (ZIKV). It is intended as a planning resource for states and ommunities as they develop a coordinated response to meet the immediate and long term needs of infants and children affected by ZIKV, and their families. The resource guide applies a system of care approach and builds on existing Federal and State services and programs for supporting children with special health care needs (CSHCN). This information will assist states and communities in effectively leveraging and integrating existing programs and assessing programmatic flexibilities to augment their systems of care to address ZIKV.
