This session will provide a clinical introduction to caring for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in PA/LTC settings, based on literature review and the presenter's 25 years of experience as a clinician, medical educator, and researcher in developmental disabilities medicine. The content material presented will be applied to four case scenarios which exemplify the breadth and complexity of health care in this population. Participants will develop and share proposals for a quality improvement initiative aiming to improve care of this population, tailored to the facilities where they practice.

Learning Objectives:
(1) Describe how the etiologic diagnosis for the developmental disability guides clinical care of this population.
(2) Apply a literature-based, culturally- sensitive model of health care to persons with IDD in PA/LTC.
(3) Outline key elements of a quality improvement initiative addressing the health care for persons with IDD in facilities where they practice.
