MacART held its 2nd annual symposium on Friday, September 15th, 2017 at McMaster Innovation Park. This year’s symposium theme was “Rethinking Autism Training” and one of our presenters was Dr. Kerry Boyd, a psychiatrist currently working at McMaster Children’s Hospital and Bethesda Services.
Dr. Boyd has over 20 years of experience working with teams that serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities across the lifespan. Together with help from Mark, a clinical educator, she presented on the Curriculum of Caring – a project that aims to generate healthcare providers who are more capable in delivering compassionate, person-centred care to people with developmental disabilities. Her entire presentation can be seen in the video above, and web-based resources for the Curriculum of Caring for People with Developmental Disabilities can be found at communicateCARE.machealth.ca.
