THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Please note the date of this seminar has changed.
This seminar will be a timely opportunity to discuss the next steps for improving health and care services for people in England with learning disabilities, autism or both.
The conference follows the recent publication of the NHS Long Term Plan, which included learning disability and autism as a key clinical priority and announced measures to tackle health inequalities, reduce waiting times for specialist services and ensure more people receive personalised community based care.
Delegates will assess the implications of the NHS Long Term Plan and the way forward for implementation - including what further measures could be taken to improve training, education provision and standards of care.
In light of the governance refresh of the Think Autism strategy and ahead of a new adults and children autism strategy expected this autumn, attendees will also discuss how effective the current strategy has been in achieving its key aims of measuring, understanding and reporting needs of autistic people, improving workforce development and encouraging participation in the local community - as well as key considerations for the new strategy going forward.
Those attending will assess progress of implementing the Government response to the Learning Disabilities Mortality Review Programme 2nd annual report, which set out action plans to improve the inequality in life expectancy for people with learning disabilities - including the electronic integration of health and care records.
