  1. Kevyn Burn, BSN, RN- Lead RN Care Manager for Wall Residences (verified owner)

    I appreciate the concise information written to all levels of understanding. I am a RN Care Manager and notice some topics extend our common information on preventable risks such as aspiration and constipation. I have shared the information on dementia resources with providers, and will happily share this resource with an ID/DD Coalition of which I am a part, advocating with our local hospital, and with fellow ID/DD nurses through a nursing monthly nursing meeting. Thank you for the valuable resource.

  2. Marcy Nelson Special Projects Coordinator

    Clinical Pearls is a great resource for our medical advocacy project attempting to inform doctors that serve people with developmental and other intellectual disabilities. It is clear and easy to read and understand for everyone from direct care professionals to family members to our medical providers. We love that pages are removable for photo coping to allow us to use page by page.

    This book is amazing and should be beside every RN working in the I/DD field!! I have been in the field for about 30 years and I wish I had had this book years ago when I started in this field. The book is an incredible resource and I have also used in in trainings and in making in-services for field staff. I have encouraged my company to purchase it for all the nurses! I would not hesitate to buy this book or purchase it as a gift for your I/DD nursing staff. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could!!

    An excellent tool. I use this time and time again, especially when I am training family group homes.
