Description

The purpose of this study was to describe the knowledge and skills of CT primary care physicians providing care to adults with disabilities. Ninety-one physicians responded. The biggest challenges to providing care reported were not enough time followed by lack of knowledge of community resources. Participants also reported an interest in receiving training, presenting an opportunity to increase provider competency to improve the health and well-being of people with disabilities.
