Brief Report: Applying an Indicator Set to Survey the Health of People with Intellectual Disabilities in Europe
Walsh, Patricia Noonan
Journal of Policy and Practice in Intellectual Disabilities, v5 n3 p211-213 Sep 2008
This report gives an account of applying a health survey tool by the "Pomona" Group that earlier documented the process of developing a set of health indicators for people with intellectual disabilities in Europe. The "Pomona" health indicator set mirrors the much larger set of health indicators prepared by the European Community Health Indicators group for the general population in Europe. The 18 indicators are classified under four categories: demographic characteristics, health status, health determinants, and health systems. After 3 years of collaborative project activity, key areas have been identified to heighten the visibility of people with intellectual disabilities in the public health domain so as to address evident health inequalities or disparities.
