In this presentation American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) will share the experiences of people who are blind or have low vision when seeking healthcare based on focus group research on patient health experiences. From these experiences, they identify ways providers can operationalize the ADA’s requirements for healthcare accessibility to provide better care for these patients. Medical professionals and healthcare administrators will come away with techniques for working directly with patients as well as understanding where training and facility design can contribute to high quality, accessible patient care.

Learning objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify three barriers to effective communication and care for patients who are blind, low vision, or deafblind.
  • Participants will be able to describe at least three techniques for providing competent and accessible care for patients who are blind or have low vision.
