Resumo

CAMPOS, Valeria  e  CARTES-VELASQUEZ, Ricardo. Health care of people with visual or hearing disabilities. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2019, vol.147, n.5, pp.634-642. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872019000500634.

Visual or hearing disabilities account for 20% of people reporting some sort of disability. We performed a literature review about the interaction that people with visual or hearing disabilities have with the health care system. We found that these people report a lower quality of life and have a higher frequency of physical and psychological ailments. They also have difficulties to obtain an adequate health care and report a paucity of trained professionals to take care of them.

Palavras-chave : Blindness; Health Services for Persons with Disabilities; Hearing Loss; Persons With Hearing Impairments; Vision, Low.
