Empowering people with learning disabilities is a priority for NHS England. Giving people with learning disabilities their families and carers more involvement in decisions over their care is fundamental to the planning of future services. We have a range of resources to enable you to contribute and respond more effectively to the needs of people with a learning disability, their carers and their support workers. The learning on this page aims to help you gain a deeper understanding of people’s experiences with pharmacy professionals, improve your communication and consultation skills with people living with a learning disability and support medicines optimisation for people living with a learning disability.
This distance learning programme will enable you to support people with a learning disability and their families to manage behaviours that challenge, in line with National Institute of Health and Care Excellence guidance. It will also empower you to adopt a holistic approach to medicines optimisation to help people with a learning disability to be involved in the consultation when they can and to make the most of their medicines.
