Today, Health Standards Organization (HSO) launched a public review on an updated Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services Standard from March 30 to May 29, 2017. The review will close on May 29th at midnight and we want your opinion.

Under the guidance of a Technical Committee comprised of experts (patients, family members, clinicians and more), the existing standard has been enhanced to better reflect the current issues affecting intellectual and developmental disabilities services. The revised standard aims to help those providing intellectual and development disabilities services meet new demands for excellence.

HSO wants members of the public to weigh in on our proposed changes to the standard, which will be applied globally. If you are a person with an intellectual or developmental disability, a family member or a service provider, let us know what you think by answering our main question in the public review document.

The public review is open for 60 days. Share you feedback and make your voice heard.
