Merchandise Description

DSP Competency – Health and Wellness

People with an IDD/MI diagnosis are at risk for more health and wellness problems than people without. They often take many medications and have barriers in communication that affect their ability to plan or organize information. These issues can make it more difficult for the person to take an active role in his/her health. This webinar will review the implications and risk factors of co-occurring disorders as well as the role of the Direct Support Professional in supporting treatment, communication, medication management, wellness, and recovery.
