Your Doctor Understand Disabilities
with disabilities or chronic medical conditions face all the same
health issues as other women, such as cancer, infections, and osteoporosis.
Now there's a guide that you can share with your physician that
discusses some of these issues and how your disability may affect
your total health.
Provider's Guide for the Care of Women with Physical Disabilities
& Chronic Medical Conditions, written by Dr. Sandra Welner,
former clinical director of Primary Care Programs for Women with
Special Needs in Washington, DC., has information about clinical
treatment of women with disabilities as well as removing barriers
to better health care.
