Promoting Intersectoral Collaboration to Support Frail Adults with IDD in the Community
Adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) experience higher rates of frailty at earlier ages than the general population. Collaboration between home care and developmental services sectors is important to support adults with IDD who are frail in the community. In this webinar, we focus on the collaboration between Reena and the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network, and share “Call to Action” resources to support individuals, families, and providers in the context of frailty and IDD.

This interactive webinar will provide information on:
• Frailty among adults with IDD
• Principles and recommendations to guide action on frailty
• Key elements of effective intersectoral collaboration in the context of supporting adults with IDD who are frail

This is an interactive webinar that seeks to get your input on issues related to frailty in the context of supporting persons with IDD through polls and other questions during the webinar. We would like to use answers to poll questions and other input received from participants in our research; note that any information used would be anonymized (i.e., your name could not be linked with the information that you provide). Answering poll questions and provision of input (e.g., through the chat box) during the webinar is completely optional and voluntary; you are under no obligation to participate in this way. You are welcome to attend the webinar even if you do not want to participate in the poll questions.

In registering for this webinar, you understand that you are under no obligation to answer any polls or other questions. If you choose to participate in the poll questions or provide input during the webinar, you understand that these answers will be anonymized and used for research purposes. Please note that registering below will be taken as a confirmation of your understanding.
