TUFH Complex Care (I/DD, Autism, Dementia, and Mental Health) Fellowship 2024

Complex Care (I/DD, Autism, Dementia, and Mental Health) Fellowship: A Collaboration to Advance Learning, Design Care Standards, and Address Workforce Barriers. The Felllowship is sponsored by The Network: TUFH and Woods System of Care. Children and adults with intellectual disability, autism and complex behavioral and medical conditions that frequently co-occur experience significant barriers to accessing healthcare and, despite medical advances, continue to experience far greater health disparities than other populations. Globally, more than 200 million people have an intellectual disability, and 75 million have autism.

The purpose of the Complex Care (I/DD, Autism, Dementia, and Mental Health) Fellowship purpose is to design and implement a population health approach to address barriers to care. A population health approach is needed to address the complex needs of this population across the entire lifespan to develop a framework that can identify gaps in services and reduce barriers to care. In addition to the fragmented nature of service systems preventing easy access to healthcare, another major barrier to care is the lack of healthcare providers across all disciplines who are qualified and trained to treat complex populations effectively. Health professions schools, including schools of medicine, nursing, and allied health, do not provide didactic or clinical training on providing care for individuals with intellectual disability, autism, and complex conditions. For this reason, TUFH and Woods System of Care have partnered to establish the Mollie Woods Hare Global Center for Excellence, which will be launched as an outcome of the Complex Care (I/DD, Autism, Dementia, and Mental Health) Fellowship.
