Developmental Disabilities Primary Care Program (DDPCP)
Primary care tools and resources regarding health care for people with IDD
* Published on October 9, 2020
Developmental Disabilities Primary Care Program (DDPCP) serves as a resource to primary care providers regarding health care of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. DDPCP bridges the gaps between research and practice in primary care for adults with developmental disabilities by publishing clinical practice guidelines for primary care that are informed by ethics, empirical studies, expert knowledge, current research on health care systems and other contexts of care, and perspectives and experiences of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their caregivers.
DDPCP curates and develops education materials, tools and resources for health care providers to help them implement the guidelines.
The Developmental Disabilities Primary Care Program is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care and the Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services.
