This product contains a recorded session that took place during the Academy’s Annual Assembly held in Orlando, FL from October 25-28, 2018.
This session is designed to teach physiatrists how to conduct sports physicals for patients with ID. This is an important topic, given that obtaining a pre-participation sports physical can be a barrier to physical activity for many people with ID. Physiatrists are trained in conducting sports physicals as part of residency training; this session will intentionally include people with ID as a patient population served by physiatrists. Presentations will deliver brief foundational lectures, to educate physiatrists about patients with intellectual disability. The lectures will cover the following themes: health disparities faced by patients with ID (with a focus on issues related to obesity/healthy weight), topics in the clinical care of pediatric and adult patients with ID, and healthcare transition.
