Teaching student Adult nurses re Learning Disability

For a couple of years, Andy Nazarjuk, Andrew Southgate and Cathy Bernal have been developing an approach to addressing health inequalities amongst people with learning disabilities by bringing students of Adult nursing and groups of service users together in Canterbury Christ Church University.
