During 2015 the Kent and Medway Learning Disability Community of Practice in partnership with East Kent Hospitals Clinical Education and three experts by experience have been running half day workshops for mainstream healthcare professionals.
The aims of the programme has been to explore definitions of learning disabilities, the evidence base and legal frameworks, with a view to encouraging participants to explore what ‘reasonable adjustments’ might mean in their work context. More details of these can be found here.
The outcome of this project is a conference to report back on the outcomes, and for individuals and teams to share how they make adjustments for people with learning disabilities. We are pleased to share the National Clinical Director for Learning Disabilities at NHS England Dominic Slowie will be opening the event.
The target audience for this event is non-learning disability professionals.
