Empowering Health Consumers with Disabilities

Resource list for people living with a disability (plus associated needs) and their carers, family and friends

HCC partnered with People With disabilities WA to deliver a project which examined health literacy materials and put them to the test of disability friendliness. The project delivered nine training sessions on Disability Health Rights for people with disabilities, and their carers, family and support people. Topics covered included: rights, ideas for getting better care, where to go for help, medical records and information sharing, and navigating the health system.

A series of booklets and videos were produced for this project, and are linked below. Working group members also shared their views on how health services could engage more with people with disabilities at this blog article:
