Women with Disabilities Education Program

Women with Disabilities Education Program

Administered by APGO, this program provides continuing medical education to inform, expand, update and illustrate state-of-the-art health care services for women with disabilities.

Two parallel educational series are being developed—one for health care professionals and one for women with disabilities—to improve the way health care is provided for women with disabilities and to provide self-management tools for patients. It is intended that the materials be utilized across disciplines.

Two educational modules in the series are now available: Introduction to Women with Disabilities and Communication. Each module offers PowerPoint slides and discussion questions. A module on Breast Care is underway; other important topics are planned for the future.
