Pa. Patients with Disabilities as Trainers Program (PA P-DAT)
|Welcome to the online home of the Pennsylvania Patients with Disabilities as Trainers Program (PA P-DAT). Here you'll find administrative, educational, and evaluation tools and resources to support your participation in the PA P-DAT Program.
PA P-DAT is an education innovation that empowers parent and patient partners to teach medical students, residents, and primary care office staff about disability etiquette through sharing their own experiences within the healthcare system.
The P-DAT program was originally developed in 2008 by Dr. Sweety Jain and Cheryl Dougan in collaboration with the LVHN Medical Home Project with funding provided by the Schwartz Center.
The PA P-DAT project is funded in part by a grant from the Schwartz Center for Compassionate Healthcare in memory of Christian Minard.
The below are a collection of publicly available resources developed by PA P-DAT to support curriculum innovation in medical schools and residency programs. You are welcome to use our handouts as resources, and if you do, please let us know how you plan to use them.
