Partnering to Transform Health Outcomes with Persons with IDD (PATH-PWIDD)

April 23, 2021

The Institute on Community Integration is collaborating with Rush University Medical Center, the M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing at Villanova University, and several other organizations to improve health and healthcare for persons with IDD by improving education received by students and professionals in medicine, nursing, and other healthcare fields. The project will meet this goal by designing, implementing, and disseminating an interprofessional education and practice program to be integrated into existing courses across disciplines.

The project uses the Collective Impact Model, a social change process that emphasizes collaboration among stakeholders, including advocates with IDD, family members, support people and caregivers, healthcare education and practice leaders, community organizations, and financial experts.
