The Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD) Self-directed Health Care Kit is a practical way to help you and your supports set up and prepare for appointments by gathering the needed information ahead of time. It gives you the necessary tools to be prepared and to receive the quality care you deserve at every medical appointment or hospital visit. We hope this kit is useful to you and becomes a part of your health and wellness routine.
This Self-directed Health Care Kit is designed to help individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities (I/DD) advocate for their own health care and support clear communication between the individual and their health care practitioners. The kit includes a set of forms for tracking health care concerns and interventions. It has also been designed to help the person in a supportive role to help advocate for the individual and enhance the interaction between the individual and the health care practitioner.
