Each module is designed to focus on providing physicians with practical recommendations, tools and strategies to help enhance care for patients with disability. The objective is to help physicians identify small changes they can make to better meet the needs of their patients with disability and increase the quality of care for all patients.

Recommendations for Physical Examination & Clinical Management (WB2916) highlights approaches and techniques that can be used to modify the physical examination and inform clinical management decisions in order to meet the unique needs of each patient with disability.
Encouraging Partnerships Between Patients with Disability and Physicians (WB2917) facilitates the importance of communication between physicians and their patients with disability and provides recommendations to enhance the physician patient partnership.
