Hospitals and other healthcare organizations frequently grapple with understanding and fulfilling their communication responsibilities to patients who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

To help healthcare organizations achieve compliance, we are offering a webinar titled “Healthcare Providers: Understanding Communication Responsibilities to Patients Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing.”

The free, closed-captioned webinar will take place at 11 a.m. PT/2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, October 23. You can register for the webinar here.

In this webinar, Julia Sain, a preeminent ADA and disabilities-rights expert, will outline federal requirements for public accommodations. She will also address attendee questions.

The webinar will also include:

  • A discussion of communication requirements and effective strategies for serving people with communication disabilities under Title II of the ADA
  • A conversation about the proper use of “auxiliary aids and services” to ensure effective communication
  • Helpful tips for healthcare organizations seeking to comply with Title III
  • A Q&A session with Julia Sain, Executive Director of Disability Rights & Resources

We look forward to hosting you on October 23.
