Re-envisioning Care for Persons With Involved Disabilities

The health care system frequently falls short when it comes to the care of people with complex needs, particularly people with involved disabilities. We need a different approach, one that is built on a partnership between consumers and clinicians, and that reimagines what care would look like if it were truly person-centered.

To support clinicians and health system leaders in understanding and adopting principles of person-centered care, the Center for Community Engagement in Health Innovation has worked with Dr. Robert Master and other clinician and consumer leaders to produce a series of short educational videos.

An initial series of four video modules will be available in early 2019. Each video runs for approximately 10 minutes and is designed for asynchronous learning that fits into the learner’s schedule. Register here to be notified when these videos are available. Watch a preview of the first module. . .

The video series examines:

  • How the traditional medical system fails to meet the needs of people with involved disabilities;
  • How the values of the Independent Living model can help to create a system of care that lowers barriers and honors the lived experience of people with disabilities;
  • How to change organizational culture to reflect a holistic, person-centered system of care; and
  • How home-based care primary care contributes to the care of people with complex health and social needs.

This project is made possible with support from the Rx Foundation.
