Grants and Contracts Details


Abstract he University of Kentucky Human Development Institute will continue its partnership with the Kentucky Women’s Cancer Screening Program (KWCSP) by utilizing the information gathered from the community needs assessment to address the identified barriers for women with disabilities across the state to access quality breast and cervical cancer screenings. Continued efforts will focus on the distribution and implementation of universally designed patient education materials. Collaborative efforts with KWCSP partner, the Kentucky Cancer Program, will work to deliver healthcare provider education materials including videos, trainings, and/or infographics. Additional efforts include information dissemination of outcomes from the assessment implementation, specific training and education for KWCSP healthcare providers about serving people with disabilities, broadening outreach of screening and education services to reach the areas of the state which experience higher cancer screening disparities, and creation of more accessible cancer education resources and programs that are meaningfully inclusive of individuals with disabilities.
