[Autom. eng. transl.] For a person with a disability, dealing with the everyday life of a hospital can be a dramatic experience. The tools to be put in place to improve access and in-hospital care of people with disabilities above all imply a cultural change to be made with a strong commitment to training and raising awareness among the operators in the sector. People with disabilities have the same health care needs, they have the right to the same treatments, prevention paths and care of others. The book is aimed primarily at health professionals, caregivers, people with disabilities. The disabled person's relationship with the health world is addressed, in particular with the hospital and those who work there. Much space is given to the testimonies of experiences already existing in some Italian structures: the authors describe them in a concrete and operative way, so as to make them examples that can be replicated. The appendix contains the Charter of the rights of people with disabilities in the hospital, the first step for the realization of diagnostic and therapeutic pathways for people with disabilities.
