Video in the Works!
By: Promote Awareness
Sara Axtell from the
University of Minnesota, Ronna Linroth from Gillette Technology Center
and Mike Cohn of Promote Awareness are working on a new video that is
geared towards enhancing the knowledge of medical students regarding how
to interact with a patient who is disabled. Many times doctors and nurses
make incorrect assumptions about patients with disabilities.
The purpose of this video and training material is to show various scenarios,
both good and bad, that have occurred in the medical field. The accompanying
material will provide questions that follow with the video as well as
other resources if there are further questions on a particular disability.
If you have had negative experiences with a medical professional and would
like to share your experience, please E-mail Michael Cohn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
