Event description

Description

This seminar is about best practice in delivering palliative care to people with learning disabilities. People in this population group often present with distinct issues, challenges and circumstances that make it more difficult to meet their palliative care needs. The presenter Irene Tuffrey-Wijne chaired the taskforce who developed the EAPC White Paper on consensus norms that provided guidance on what good practice looks like for palliative care in this population. These norms are aspirational. They present a European-wide consensus on quality goals. ‘Getting it right’ for people with intellectual disabilities has huge advantages for palliative care services (or any other mainstream services). Health professionals able to provide good care for patients with this level of complexity and challenges, are likely to be able to provide good care for all their patients – this includes those with other challenges including dementia, or mental health problems. The seminar has been CPD approved.
