Social Inclusion focuses on the factors for success and failure that come into play when designing inclusion processes. The book examines the role of health care organizations and their contributions to inclusion. From the perspective of the health care organization, the following issues are explored:
* To what extent has the history of health care been obstructive for inclusion?
* Which roles do government, advocates and stakeholders play?
* Which roles are played by organizational features, the employees and those with an intellectual disability who are supported by a health care organization?
* Which implementation strategy would be the most appropriate when designing changes?
The book shows that important lessons can be learned from Dutch health care. It provides valuable insights resulting from the research that lies at the basis of this publication.
