Treating Women with Physical Disabilities

with 2 comments

CROWD has a really terrific powerpoint on gynecological consideration in treating women with physical disabilities. I post it here because it’s a great overview of some of the exam techniques that can be useful (a consideration for those of us completing SAFE exams); challenges in identifying STIs and other GYN issues in this population; and potential red flags for physical and sexual abuse. The slides are accompanied by detailed notes, making the whole thing a great educational tool.

I’m also a big fan of some of the work done on this topic by the Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault; their page has a host of information related to both disability and aging.

  1. Thanks for including information on this topic which is so often under-considered in our practice.
