Study Finds Doctors Know Little About Their Obligations to People With Disabilities

A recent article discusses that even three decades after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a new study finds that many doctors are unaware of their obligations under the law when caring for people with disabilities.

The study’s findings include:

  • More than a third of doctors surveyed had little or no knowledge about their legal requirements under the ADA.
  • 71% did not know who determines reasonable accommodations.
  • 68% indicated they believed they are at risk for ADA lawsuits.
