COVID-19 and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities: Ethics

Tue, September 01, 2020
Webinar

Hosted by the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine and Surrey Place

Tuesday September 1
12:00pm - 1:30pm (ET)

Adults with intellectual developmental disabilities (IDD), such as autism and Down Syndrome, are not only more susceptible to COVID-19 but have also been facing greater physical, mental health, and ethical challenges during the pandemic.

 

Bringing together front-line clinicians caring for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and researchers from a range of disciplines and medical specialties, this webinar series will focus on what has been learnt about this group in relation to COVID-19, the practical implications for their health, and how to move forward. This third webinar addresses ethical questions and issues that have emerged in health care and support of people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities and their families during the pandemic.
