  • Barriers‎ and Solutions
    by DREDF February 5, 2014 - DREDF is pleased to announce the release of three, new short videos from our acclaimed HEALTHCARE STORIES series. Focusing on common and widespread barriers to care, the new videos feature stories about inaccessible examination tables and weight scales and healthcare provider misperceptions and stereotypes. They also recommend actions for improving care. These downloadable videos not only present an all-important human perspective, they also affirm the barriers to care that a decade of research has revealed.
