Ask for it: development of a health advocacy intervention for adults with intellectual disability and their general practitioners

Lennox, N., Taylor, M., Rey-Conde, T., Bain, C., Boyle, F. M., Purdie, D. M.

Academic Literature

2004

This article seeks to outline a communication tool that aims to improve communication between people with intellectual disability, general practitioners (GPs) and advocates. The ask (advocacy skills set) diary includes qualities not found in most other medical record keeping systems: visual appeal, advice on how to be a health advocate, utility for a range of users, privacy, portability and sufficient capacity to record personal patient information which enhanced communication between doctor, patient and advocate.
