Improving Emergency Care for Adults with Developmental Disabilities: A Toolkit for Providers
This toolkit is an opportunity to share implementation tools with emergency providers who are interested in improving the care provided to patients with developmental disabilities (DD). The resources included in this Toolkit can be used together, or as stand alone materials, depending on the needs, goals and existing resources in your hospital. We encourage you to use whichever pieces of this Toolkit feel appropriate for your site. We have made electronic versions of all materials available. Where available, we have included a modifiable version (usually in Microsoft Word), that can be downloaded, then further adapted for your site. We ask that acknowledgment be given to the H-CARDD program. We envision that all the materials included in the toolkit could be uploaded into EMRs as easy-to-access materials for paper-based practice settings.
