Campaign for Barrier Free Health Services in Alberta
Thursday, May 30, 2013
Did you know that many Albertans find it difficult to access basic health services?
Through the years, the Alberta Committee of Citizens with Disabilities has heard people with disabilities express frustration over barriers to health care in Alberta. Some experience physical barriers; others encounter communication barriers; and many feel they are not given enough time with their doctor to have their needs met. This is only a broad description of the barriers. Indeed, the issues are deeper and more complex.
It can be tricky to be proactive about your health when there are so many barriers in the way. With a bit more awareness, visits to the Doctor's office could be a lot easier.
This video highlights many of the barriers which exist today and also provides some easy solutions to make health services more accessible to all.
