Virtual health care for adult patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities: A scoping review


The COVID-19 pandemic led to an abrupt shift to virtual health care for many patients,including adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). Approaches to virtual care thatare successful for people without IDD may need to be adapted for adults with IDD.


The aim of this scoping review was to examine what is known about virtual health care for adults with IDD and in particular, the impact of virtual delivery on access to care for this population.
