Our Monthly meeting will include a presentation & discussion:

Lecture Title:

             Building a Professional Healthcare Disability Curriculum

Lecture Description:

CSWE Disability Curriculum resource guide is a robust example of meeting professional healthcare educational requirements linked to professional competencies. Each healthcare profession's university program has its distinct set of core competencies to meet accreditation standards. Disability curriculum is essential for equitable interprofessional education. The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE) is the national association representing social work education in the United States and has developed an excellent example of a disability curriculum linked to competencies. Join us for a discussion about the development of the CSWE Disability Curriculum resource guide and how it can be used as a foundational rubric for many other healthcare professionals. The guide contains interprofessional content applicable for informing equitable disability healthcare. Our goal for our viewers is to take away multiple resource ideas for building their own disability curriculum based on their profession's competencies.
