The videos feature perspectives from Robert Master, MD, cofounder of Commonwealth Care Alliance, and consumer leaders with disabilities on how to improve primary care for this population. The first video provides an overview of the Independent Living movement and the core values when redesigning a primary care delivery system. The second video emphasizes how to create a person-centered culture within primary care that places individuals with disabilities on the same expertise level as the clinician. The third video describes a successful interdisciplinary team approach that can help individuals with disabilities coordinate their care. Finally, the fourth video explains the benefits of home-based primary care for individuals with involved disabilities.
This set of videos can help inform health systems and providers in creating a more person-centered primary care experience for people with disabilities by treating them as equal partners in care and conducting care visits in the home.
