Queen's University Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (QUIDD) Collaborative

The Queen's University Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (QUIDD) Collaborative is an initiative of Queen's Department of Family Medicine and the Centre for Studies in Primary Care.

The collaborative is composed of physicians, health-care providers, researchers and stakeholders who are committed to advancing research and education in intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) and to delivering quality health care to IDD patients and their families.

To date, Queen's Department of Family Medicine continues to work toward implementing the Primary Care Guidelines, which will result in faculty and resident providing annual health checks to their IDD patients. One of the group's next steps includes addressing identified IDD health care gaps, such as the lack of support available to patients who are suspected of having a mild IDD but who have not had the suspected IDD either identified or diagnosed.
