Promoting the participation of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in research and treatment decisions

Speakers: Melissa Raspa and Anne Wheeler of RTI

Historically, individuals with disabilities played virtually no role in making life decisions. But, advocates and ethicists have sought to empower these individuals to make informed choices. This presentation will focus on factors associated with decision-making ability and tools researchers can used to promote involvement in health-related decisions, with particular focus on the informed consent process.
