Marks, B. & Sisirak, J. (2017). NPs Promoting Physical Activity: People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. The Journal for Nurse Practitioners, 13(1), e1–e5. DOI: 10.1016/j.nurpra.2016.10.023

Abstract

People with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are not residing in large congregate care centers due to legislative, attitudinal, and treatment changes, and they are living longer than their peers of previous generations. With the absence of inclusive and accessible health promotion, people with IDD are experiencing a constellation of health issues related to negative determinants of health. This article aims to raise awareness among nurse practitioners that people with IDD need support from their health care providers to be physical active. A secondary aim is to discuss barriers and resources for people with IDD to be more physically active.
