Taking Charge of My Health Care free online toolkit

Taking Charge of My Health Care summary

The Oregon Self-Advocacy Coalition, the Oregon Office on Disability and Health and the University Center of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities are excited to share the Taking Charge of My Health Care Toolkit, an online resource for people with Intellectual/Developmental Disability and those who support them. The toolkit provides information, resources and skills-building strategies for individuals to learn how to best advocate for their health and health care. The toolkit offers 9 modules of different topics that can be used for individual learning or in a workshop or group format. Each of the 9 modules can also be used individually as a stand-alone lesson, or any combination of the modules can be used for a workshop or class format. The toolkit is a collaboration between the Oregon Self-Advocacy Coalition, the Oregon Council on Developmental Disabilities, the Oregon Office on Disability and Health and the University Center of Excellence in Developmental Disabilities and with input from members of an expert panel and other stakeholders.

Mammography Accessibility Project resources

The purpose of the directory is to better inform Oregon women with disabilities of the accessibility/usability features of their area mammography facilities. The information will assist women with disabilities to better select facilities based on their abilities and/or prepare for their upcoming mammography exam. 

The facilities featured in this Directory agreed to participate in a free, voluntary, on-site accessibility assessment conducted by Oregon Office on Disability and Health (OODH) staff. To date, OODH has assessed approximately 50% of the 109 mammography facilities in the state.
