With the rising prevalence of autism, access to health care services by the patient with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is inevitable. Although a great deal of literature exists regarding autism, limited research has been conducted regarding nurse knowledge, competence and awareness when caring for the ASD population. Evidence suggests that minimal education is provided to front-line nurses on how to work with ASD patients. When nurses are put in a position to care for a patient without adequate knowledge and training, outcomes and safety are jeopardized. The Autism Spectrum Disorder Care Provider Education Program (ASDCPEP) was designed to address these issues.
