This participatory community-based research study reveals that current healthcare systems across Canada largely fail to adequately meet the unique needs of persons with intellectual disabilities and/or persons with autism. In exploring current practices and understandings of healthcare systems related to how they provide—or do not provide—services for individuals with intellectual disabilities and/or persons with autism, as well as the ways by which family members and advocates intervene when healthcare services fail to meet standards of practice, interviews with 21 stakeholders across Canada were conducted. The findings of this qualitative methods study revealed numerous systemic barriers and attitudinal barriers that negatively impact the healthcare of persons with intellectual disabilities and/or persons with autism.
