Description

A great deal of print and online information is provided by health care providers to patients and companions. This includes treatment plans, information about follow-up appointments and prescriptions. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other laws require health care providers to communicate effectively with patients and companions who are blind or experiencing vision loss. This session will explore ways in which critical health information can be provided in accessible formats. The presenters will also discuss their personal experiences as blind individuals and the best ways health care staff can offer and provide assistance to patients and companions.
