End of life care for people with learning disabilities
Thu 30 March 2017, 09:30 – 16:00 BST
There are often problems co-ordinating end of life care for people with learning disabilities. They are less likely to have their pain well managed and less likely to access specialist palliative care services.
This event will look at what is known about end of life care for people with learning disabilities and what can be done to improve this. Topics to be covered include pain management for people with complex needs and the difference setting makes to end of life care outcomes.
There will be new data and research findings shared about end of life care for people with learning disabilities. Speakers include Irene Tuffrey-Wijne, who has extensive clinical and research experience in the field of learning disabilities and palliative care.
