<< Back to Program


Tuesday, November 13, 2018 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM

Location: Congressional A

Session Description

All posters for the AUCD Conference will be presented throughout Monday and Tuesday (this is new in 2018) in a series of Poster Symposia that run at the same time as concurrent sessions. During these 75 minute poster symposia, 12-15 posters on a similar theme will be grouped together in a room. Posters will be displayed on large boards and have a table underneath for accompanying materials. The session will be introduced by a moderator, poster authors will be asked to provide a very brief introduction of their poster, and then attendees will be free to move about the room to speak with poster presenters directly for the remainder of the session. Attendees are also welcome to move between symposia rooms and view posters on other topics. Conference posters submitted ahead of time are also avilable electronically in the conference app and linked below.

Prevalence of Disabilities and Healthcare Access by Disability Status and Type Among U.S. Adults, 2016
catherine okoro, PhD, Epidemiologist, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disa
^
Persons with disabilities may face greater barriers to health care than persons without disabilities. We characterized adults with specific disability types (hearing, vision, cognition, mobility, self-care, and independent living), and disability-specific disparities in healthcare access. Healthcare access measures were health insurance coverage, usual healthcare provider, routine checkup within preceding 12 months, and no unmet healthcare need due to cost within preceding 12 months.

Collaboration across disability-focused programs* can be challenging, but when it works well, it promotes innovation across research and inter--professional training, and improves services and communication/dissemination across the life span for individuals with disabilities and their families. This poster will highlight the working relationships among the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center�s IDDRC, LEND, UCEDD, and TRIAD programs and provide a sample of exemplary projects that are strengthened by these partnerships.

Highlighting the Prevalence of Cardiovascular Risks Among Appalachian Children with Disabilities
Lesley Cottrell, PhD, Professor & Director, Center for Excellence in Disabilities, UCEDD/LEND
^
Adults living with at least one disability are more vulnerable to poor health outcomes such as obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and hypercholesterolemia than adults without a disability. Existing literature has demonstrated that children as young as five are also vulnerable to these risks, yet very few studies have examined this issue. This session will highlight work conducted to examine health risk factors among adults and children with disabilities.

Paradigm Shift: Design Thinking Framework Applied to Disability Community-Based Action Research
Rebecca Dosch Brown, MFA, PhD student, MNLEND coordinator, MN LEND, UMN ICI/RTC-CL
Jess Roberts, MArch, UMN Culture of Health by Design, MN Design Center, Minneapolis, MN, United States;

Design thinking (DT), a future-oriented problems-based framework, came out of architecture and design schools, and has been adapted to both business and healthcare sectors. DT offers a paradigm shift for disability research. Design thinking concepts, such as empathetic engagement, problem-framing, radical collaboration, and rapid prototyping complement and support the push for person- and family-centered systems change. Lessons from a Bush Foundation grant�s interdisciplinary design-thinking collaboration on sandwich caregiving is shared.
