Event description
The Learning Disabilities and Autism: Improving Care conference will be no exception in continuing to drive the agenda to improve lives.

About this Event

In more recent times the learning disability and autism sector has deservedly been the focus of greater attention. With approximately 1.5 million people in the UK with a learning disability and 1% of the population with an autism spectrum condition it is a continuing process to make things better for those that are living with or affected by learning disability and/or autism.

Open Forum Events has and unenviable reputation for hosting highly informative, practical and thought-provoking meetings, bringing together key stakeholders to discuss, debate and help formulate future policy and action.

The Learning Disabilities and Autism: Improving Care will be no exception in continuing to drive the agenda to improve lives.

There has been some significant activity and new developments in recent months and this conference, with the insightful contributions from the expert speakers, will provide delegates with updates on:

  • How the NHS investment of £5 million will improve the care for people with a learning disability and the action plan to reduce unavoidable and premature deaths based on the data from the Learning Disability Mortality Review.
  • Two reports highlighting the concerns for people that have been hospitalised in mental health facilities, often on a long-term basis many miles from home, and the treatment and care practices they are subject to including segregation and restraint.
  • The positive steps being taken to improve outcomes including training for professional staff, recognising and reducing discrimination, alleviating isolation, curbing overzealous medicating and showcasing inspirational influence.

As we enter 2020 join us at the Learning Disabilities and Autism: Improving Care conference with the hope that by the end of the decade, if not sooner, inequalities will be a thing of the past for people with learning disability and/or autism.
