Assisting People with Disabilities and Chronic Healthcare Conditions in Shelter/Emergency Settings Training

DMRC Mission Statement

To serve the state of Delaware by establishing, implementing, and sustaining Delaware’s reserve units of medical and non-medical volunteers to strengthen the public health infrastructure, improve emergency preparedness response, and increase community resilience in Delaware.

 

Assisting People with Disabilities and Chronic Healthcare Conditions in Shelter/Emergency Settings

This training will provide information about the challenges that people with various disabilities and chronic healthcare conditions face on a daily basis and how these challenges might be addressed in an emergency shelter setting.  The training will also provide an opportunity for those attending to discuss these challenges directly with individuals who have a disability or chronic healthcare condition and to become familiar with a new mobile app that can be used as a resource when working with this population in the future.

Presenter – Phyllis Guinivan, PhD, University of Delaware, Center for Disabilities Studies
