The 10 Policies and Practices That all Health Science Programs Should Adopt

 

A commitment to inclusion requires programs to be thoughtful and purposeful in their approach to the full inclusion of students with disabilities. This is most evident in the policies and practices that programs adopt. Informed by recent litigation, OCR resolutions, progressive practices across the US, and the forthcoming Springer Nature book Disability as Diversity: A Guidebook for Inclusion in Medicine, Nursing, and the Health Professions the presenters will offer 10 policies and practices that are critical to the inclusion of students with disabilities.

Disability and Wellness: Knowing When and What to Accommodate

 

Programs often forget to consider accommodations for students with psychological disabilities, instead only referring them to wellness programming or counseling services. This webinar identifies programmatic pitfalls and referral opportunities. Participants will also learn how to navigate the leave of absence and program re-entry landscape using Department of Justice guidance. We will review accommodation best practices for this population, informed by accreditation standards, mental health experts, health science associations, and the books: Medical Student Well-Being: An Essential Guide and Disability as Diversity: A Guidebook for Inclusion in Medicine, Nursing, and the Health Professions (Coming in June).

Clinical Accommodations: Determination, Implementation and Promising Practices

 

Accommodating students in clinical settings continues to be a source of confusion, with many programs reporting that they simply "do not accommodate clinicals." This is not, however, in keeping with promising practices or legal requirements. In this webinar, we identify the biggest misconceptions in health science education regarding accommodations for clinical settings, and offer approaches that are vetted by health science campuses across the country. We provide answers for some of the most frequently asked questions about clinical accommodations and break down the decision-making process using student case reviews that draw on new guidance from Disability as Diversity: A Guidebook for Inclusion in Medicine, Nursing, and the Health Professions (Coming in June). Finally, we discuss the promise of simulation for disability inclusion.
