AMPHL specifically targets those with degrees in professional health care fields such as physicians, veterinarians, dentists, nurses, physician's assistants, technicians, audiologists, therapists, as well as students from these respective fields. This organization was formed for several reasons. As the American With Disabilities Act becomes more integrated in medicine, an increasing number of individuals with hearing losses are entering health care fields."

    DisabledAndInjuredHealthcareWorkers HC Profs who live with a disability, Susan Townsend BS RN List Owner, Yahoo Groups:"This group was started by a couple of RN's who live with disabilities, but want to remain as active members of the healthcare community. We are continuously making efforts to increase the awareness of the healthcare community as to our desire to return and continue working with accommodations. It appears that once a nurse or healthcare worker is injured, either physically, mentally or emotionally; the healthcare community throws us away and expects us to accept it. We are not interested in leaving nursing or healthcare. We can still offer our experience and knowledge to our colleagues. We want to find ways for healthcare workers that have a disability to remain employed. If you are one of these or just interested in changing things, we welcome you to our forum and encourage your feedback. We would like you to post some personal information such as your disability story as we like to know a little about our members. As you might expect, we will not tolerate anyone posting inflammatory posts, advertising in any form for your business, or any post that is inconsistent with the the purpose of our group."

    Help Wanted? Consider Nurses with Disabilities, Donna Carol Maheady, ARNP, EdD, Nursing Spectrum:"AS THE MOTHER OF A DAUGHTER with disabilities, I've been involved in handicap advocacy efforts for many years, but it wasn't until I conducted my doctoral dissertation research1 that I learned about the contributions that nurses with disabilities can make to the profession and the regrettably scarce resources available for this growing group of RNs. That's why I took a giant step two years ago and created a nonprofit website for nurses and students with disabilities. Called www.ExceptionalNurse.com , the site serves as a resource network for nurses and students with disabilities. It provides links to disability-related organizations, technology, equipment, financial aid, mentors, employment opportunities, and legal issues, as well as related articles and research. Since the website's debut, more than 8,000 visitors have logged on."

    The meaning of disability in a caring environment. Pohl CM, Winland-Brown JE:"Department of Health Administration, College of Social Science, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton. The meaning of disability on perception of self-worth as a nurse was identified through this qualitative study of disabled registered nurses. A metaphor emerged depicting the phenomena of the lived experience of disabled nurses. The results indicate that by creating a caring environment, nurse administrators can encourage disabled RNs to return to nursing practice."

    U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC):"With its headquarters in Washington, D.C., and through the operations of 50 field offices nationwide, the EEOC coordinates all federal equal employment opportunity regulations, practices, and policies. The Commission interprets employment discrimination laws, monitors the federal sector employment discrimination program, provides funding and support to state and local Fair Employment Practices Agencies (FEPAs), and sponsors outreach and technical assistance programs. Any individual who believes he or she has been discriminated against in employment may file an administrative charge with the EEOC. After investigating the charge, the EEOC determines if there is "reasonable cause" to believe discrimination has occurred. If "reasonable cause" is found, the EEOC attempts to conciliate the charge by reaching a voluntary resolution between the charging party and the respondent. If conciliation is not successful, the Commission may bring suit in federal court. As part of the administrative process, the EEOC may also issue a Right-to-Sue-Notice to the charging party, allowing the charging party to file an individual action in court without the Agency's involvement."
