Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Background: Canadian higher education data confirms that there are an increasing number of students with disabilities seeking admission to and attending various academic programs, including Nursing. As a result, many schools are challenged with their duty to accommodate the disabled student as mandated by federal and provincial legislation versus how to maintain academic integrity, patient safety and professional standards. Method: A systematic literature review was conducted seeking Canadian and international articles published since 1995 discussing students with disabilities in the health professions. The search revealed more 45 articles related to this topic which were analysed. Results: This presentation presents the findings of the review and discusses issues, strategies and initiatives that should be consider by Canadian Nursing programs in on- campus and clinical practice academic settings.
