Description

People with learning disabilities have poorer health than the general population and experience health inequalities - partly as a result of problems with accessing health services. Health services have a duty to address health inequalities, by making reasonable adjustments to their services so they are more accessible to people with learning disabilities, but this does not always happen. Failure to make reasonable adjustments can have significant adverse effects for people with learning disabilities and their families. Nurses are well placed to implement reasonable adjustments, many of which are simple to do and can save lives.

Objectives

This module provides information on common problems encountered by people with learning disabilities and their families when trying to access healthcare services, along with recommendations for nurses on how to ameliorate the situation.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Describe some common health problems experienced by people with learning disabilities.
Outline the barriers to accessing healthcare services experienced by people with learning disabilities.
Explain the purpose of reasonable adjustments in enabling access to healthcare services for people with learning disabilities.
Identify possible changes you could make to healthcare services to improve accessibility for people with learning disabilities.
