Quality Services for People with Disabilities and Activity Limitations
. . .  An online, self-paced training used by many health plans

“We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.”

If you’re a health care worker who works with the public, this workshop is for you.

  • Are you a manager?
  • Do you work in member services or at a call center?
  • Are you a front office worker, such as a receptionist, administrative assistant, patient information aide, or volunteer?
  • Are you a member of a clinical team – maybe a doctor, nurse, therapist, technologist, technician, social worker, or aide?

Every day, your duties bring you into contact with someone who is seeking access to quality health care services with some type of temporary or permanent disability or functional need.
