HLSC 3000U – Disability, Rehabilitation and Society


This course will draw from the fields of health and social sciences to identify and critically evaluate how healthcare, insurance, and regulatory systems diagnose, treat, manage, compensate, and support disabled persons (as defined broadly in law and policy). This cross-disciplinary approach to interpreting disability and rehabilitation will enable students to address how social determinants in the development of disability affect quality of life, including physical and attitudinal barriers, adverse effects discrimination, and poverty. The course will address the relationships between health practitioners, caregivers, policymakers, and legal tribunals that impact available system service supports, determinations of capacity, interpretations of care and recovery, rehabilitation programs, institutional versus independent and community living, and equitable access to  community.
