Advocacy Letter for Visually Impaired Patients
A committee consisting of five blind people recently gathered to casually discuss the topic of access to patient health information and the needs of those with impaired vision. As a result of this discussion, it was determined that there was a need for a prefabricated letter outlining patient requirements and the measures that need to be taken by the medical facility or doctor’s office to provide better access to and protection of personal health information for the blind and visually impaired.
To this end, the two sample letters listed below were created. Feel free to download and present these letters to your medical practitioners. The goal is better information access and security for everyone.
