Sustainable and Cost-Effective Access to Dermatologic Care for Deaf Patients

Organization:
Massachusetts Academy of Dermatology

We request funding to identify sustainable, compliant approaches for dermatologists to accommodate deaf patients seeking medical care. We wish to develop an ADA-compliant policy that is legally vetted for use by members of the Massachusetts Academy of Dermatology. These guidelines would establish practical and cost-effective measures by which dermatologists could regularly provide high-quality consultations to deaf patients who might require ASL interpreters at providers’ expense.
