Resources, Protocols, Workflow, and Tip Sheets for Providers and Clinic Staff

Disability and Accommodations Tab Resources for Providers/Clinic Staff

We are developing resources to assist with the implementation of the Disability and Accommodations Tab. This section will be updated as these resources are developed.

  • Clinic Accessibility Checklist (updated: October 21, 2021)
    This accessibility checklist was developed by U-M CDHW and Interpreter Services to enable ambulatory care clinics to take inventory of the resources available at their clinic. Resources on this clinic accessibility checklist include physical equipment, in addition to clinic staff skills. This can help identify existing accessibility tools and resources and highlight gaps that need to be addressed. 


Implementing Modifications to the COVID-19 Mask and Visitor Policy
Please see Michigan Medicine’s Visitor Guidelines During COVID-19, including the Guidelines for Supporting Adult Patients with Disabilities During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency. To our knowledge, no Michigan Medicine guidance is available on mask policy modifications. Questions regarding policy modifications should be referred to Patient Relations and Clinical Risk at 734-936-4330.
