Healthcare OER

Blind, deafblind, and partially sighted individuals face many barriers while accessing healthcare services including inaccessible healthcare resources, difficult interactions with providers, and inaccessible physical and digital spaces. At the root of these issues is the lack of practitioner knowledge and competency in topics related to low vision and blindness.

The Floe project is working with researchers and educators at Queen’s University to bring together people with low vision and blindness, healthcare providers and curriculum creators to codesign and create educational materials that all healthcare providers can use to address these issues.
