Curricula on Developmental Disabilities for Clinicians

To improve clinicians' understanding of experiences of individuals with significant disabilities and their families, the Council is providing support to the LSU Human Development Center to develop curricula for Nurse Practitioner students, Physician Assistant students, and online Continuing Medical Education (CME) units for physicians.  The project will also expand Operation House Call to the LSU Medical School in Shreveport.  Operation House Call incorporates a structured interview of a parent of a child with complex/intensive support needs in the pediatric residency program.
