Improving Care for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities

Event information for January 19 Spotlight Series with David Mandell, ScD ‘01

Improving Care for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities  

Communities play an important role in the health and well-being of residents, and the resources available within communities can have a significant impact on an individual’s ability to receive quality need-based care. This presentation will focus on strategies to organize, fund, and deliver care to those with psychiatric and developmental disabilities at national and state levels, and discuss experimental studies designed to determine the best strategies to successfully implement proven-efficacious practices in community settings. Specific examples on community-provided need-based care will be given from the national perspective.
