The Alliance for Disability in Health Care Education (the Alliance) and the Ohio Disability and Health Program have partnered to improve the disability training that health care students receive. We asked for the help of medical professionals, educators, and people who live and/or work with disability to help us refine a draft set of disability competencies using the Delphi Method. As of April 2018, the Competency Development Committee reached consensus on a final draft of the Core Competencies on Disability for Health Care Education and are currently seeking endorsements of these standards from health care provider organizations and educational accreditation boards.
