Resources for Core Competencies on Disability for Health Care Education
Please see the Toolkit below for documents that provide more information about health disparities for people with disabilities and the need for educational standards, the Core Competencies on Disability for Health Care Education, and use of the Delphi method to gain consensus on these standards. These resources can be helpful in making the case to organizational leadership or committees to provide an official endorsement of the competencies.
