The teaching strategies offered in this section are guidelines for faculty to develop encounters with people with disabilities that are intentional and incorporate all or some of the Knowledge Domains and Essential Nursing Actions (adapted from ACE.S) into student learning experiences. 

People with Disability Teaching Strategies:

While more than 60 million people in the US are living with some type of disability, there remains very little in the way of education about this population in schools of nursing. Health care providers are faced with a complex environment in which to care for patients. This series of teaching strategies is designed to help students become more proficient in understanding disability and how to incorporate care for people with disabilities across the lifespan in varied settings.

The ACE.D Project aims to advance the care of people with disability through innovations in nursing education. Please access our resources below or our Advancing Care Excellence Series
