Empowering Health Consumers with Disabilities

HCC has partnered with People with Disabilities WA to deliver a project which examines health literacy materials and puts them to the test of disability friendliness. The project will also deliver eight training sessions on Disability Health Rights for people with disabilities, and their carers, family and support people. The sessions will cover topics including rights, ideas for getting better care, where to go for help, medical records and information sharing, and navigating the health system.

Within this project the Empowering Health Consumers with Disabilities team has produced information booklets to empower people with disabilities in healthcare.
