Spotlight on end-of-life care for those with a learning disability

10 December 2021

Facilitators:  Simon Jones, Kimberley Ashwin, Claud Regnard, Dorothy Matthews, Chris Connell, Alison Chapman, Tom Crook

This study day has been developed to help hospice and palliative care staff, as well as primary care staff and all involved in the care of those with learning disabilities, to feel more confident and knowledgeable about the care they offer. We will consider definitions of learning disabilities and tools to assess distress, recent guidance helping to develop our care, and the holistic nature of end-of-life care.
