Promoting Clinical Preventive Services Among Adults With Disabilities
Promoting Prevention Among Adults With Disabilities

Project SHIELD (Strategies and health Interventions to Enhance Life with Disability) is a participatory action research project to test an intervention package combining a resource kit with peer mentoring in improving consumer education about primary preventive services

Adults with disabilities use primary preventive health care services (basic screenings, immunizations, and hevior health counseling) at rates below those recommended by the US Preventive Services Task Force and Healthy People 2010. This projects is to carry out a community-based campaign to increase preventive care knowledge and service use among adults with physical disabilities. Focus group methodology will be used to determine the specific preventive service priorities of the disability community so that targeted resource materials for consumers and physicians can be developed. Second, a randomized control group experiment will be implemented to evaluate the effectiveness of the targeted resource materials, followed by dissemination of the Preventive Services Resource Kits.
