CSDH – The Politics of Disability
Dr. Chantal Czerednikow, General Dentist from Montreal QC, hosts the latest education session from The Canadian Society for Disability and Oral Health. Featuring presentations from six expert panelists in language, advocacy and caregiving, this in-depth discussion addresses key topics in the politics of disability, including:
- Language and the politics of disability
- The importance of building relationships and making patients feel safe
- Provincial Government funding for patients with intellectual disabilities
- Common environmental and personal barriers to care
“We have to ask ourselves what we do and why we are dentists in the first place. It’s about having respect. Respect presumes equity”. Dr. Clive Friedman
