Atlas on the Primary Care of Adults with Developmental Disabilities in Ontario

Persons with developmental disabilities have complex health care needs. But they often meet with difficulties when accessing appropriate services. Health care providers with little knowledge of how best to serve them pose another challenge.

The Atlas on the Primary Care of Adults with Developmental Disabilities in Ontario describes, for the first time, the health status of these adults, their use of health care relative to other adults, and the extent to which the primary care they receive is consistent with established clinical guidelines.

Summary

 

Atlas sur les soins primaires prodigués aux adultes ayant une déficience intellectuelle

Les personnes ayant une déficience intellectuelle ont des besoins de soins de santé complexes. Pourtant, ils font souvent face à des difficultés lorsqu’il s’agit d’accéder aux services appropriés. Le peu de connaissances des professionnels de la santé quant aux meilleurs soins à apporter aux personnes ayant une déficience intellectuelle pose d’autres défis.


L’Atlas sur les soins primaires prodigués aux adultes ayant une déficience intellectuelle décrit, pour la première fois, l’état de santé de ces adultes, leur utilisation des services de santé comparativement à celui des autres adultes ontariens et la mesure dans laquelle les soins primaires qui leur sont prodigués sont conformes aux lignes directrices cliniques.
