Dancing Backwards in High Heels: Seeing, Treating and Caring for the Patient with Autism and Other Distractions

 

Rick Rader, MD, FAAIDD, DHL

 

Description: The prevalence of autism is increasing in the United States. Coupled with increasing longevity, pronounced awareness and deinstitutionalization, there is a high probability that healthcare providers will be seeing these patients in a variety of settings. The skills, attitudes, approaches and insights that are required to effectively treat this population are applicable to every patient population. These skills can improve the clinicians acumen and help provide meaningful patient-physician encounters. This presentation explores what constitutes a "clinical distraction" how it can be evaluated and addressed. The "physician's psyche" (including hard wiring for perfection) and inherent expectations, stigma, upbringing, preconceived notions and prejudices and how they impact on patient outcomes are examined and discussed.
