I found this in my travels, today. It was a URL given as part of a
presentation done at APHA last year proving that including URLs in your
abstracts is a good thing and often exceedingly useful to folks like
myself who love finding new information and passing it along.
For those of you working with women with disabilities, you might find
this document of interest (or you might want to refer it to those who do
work with women with functional limitations). It is called: "Table
Manners and Beyond: The Gynecological Exam for Women with Developmental
Disabilities and Other Functional Limitations." It was edited by
Katherine M. Simpson, MA, MFCC and produced by Kathleen Lankasky, BA, MLE.
In addition to lots of useful information, you can find information for
midwives, birth control, midlife issues, a sample questionnaire, as well
as a lot of useful information for actually giving a pelvic - including
how to reduce stress. The manual is well-and-appropriately-illustrated
with line drawings. The URL is:

This page is part of a Website called "Breast Health Access for Women
With Disabilities". Some of the links don't always work on the site, but
what information that is available looks good. The site URL is:
http://www.bhawd.org/ . Breast Health Access for Women with Disabilities
is a community partnership of women with disabilities, breast cancer
survivors, medical professionals and grassroots disability rights
organizations apparently located in Berkeley, CA.
I also really liked the glossary/dictionary of terms for people with
breast health concerns located at
http://www.bhawd.org/sitefiles/glossary.html. Of special interest to
those experiencing pain is a listing of "words of pain"
(http://www.bhawd.org/sitefiles/painwrds.html). That I found to be
particularly interesting reading.
Hope you find this useful.

"The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn. " Alvin Toffler
"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go." T. S. Eliot
"The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both." James Michener
