New Report on Health Assessments


The Comprehensive Health Assessment Program (CHAP) is an assessment tool that physicians and caregivers can use to help individuals with intellectual disability (ID) overcome barriers to accessing proper health care. We conducted interviews and focus group discussions with physicians and other individuals providing care to persons with ID to ask whether they would be willing to use the CHAP and what support they would need. We found that all the stakeholder groups we spoke to were supportive of implementation of the CHAP. Results from our feasibility study are summarized in this report.
This study is funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
On January 9th, we hosted a knowledge translation workshop to share and discuss our research findings. A workshop report is being developed and will soon be available.
