Approximately 1 percent of the general population has mental retardation.1 The U. Surgeon General has identified “glaring” health disparities in the availability of good health care for adults with mental retardation compared with the general population.2 These disparities are caused in part by inadequate compensation and a lack of experience among health care professionals in meeting the needs of this population.2 Increasing numbers of persons with mental retardation are living into adulthood, and primary care physicians are needed to direct the medical support necessary for successful community integration.
A = consistent, good quality patient-oriented evidence; B = inconsistent or limited quality patient-oriented evidence; C = consensus, disease-oriented evidence, usual practice, expert opinion, or case series.
Office visits can be successful if physicians familiarize patients with the office and staff, plan for difficult behaviors, and administer mild sedation when appropriate.
