More Information, Less Medication: Why patient communication is key
Free 1 day conference hosted by CHANGE, in partnership with the Patient Information Forum and supported by NHS England. This event is for patient information providers, people with a learning disability and health professionals.
CHANGE is working in partnership with the Patient Information Forum to understand and prevent the overuse of psychotropic medication for people with a learning disability/autism. NHS England found that 72% of people with a learning disability have been prescribed psychotropic medication, but only 29% of people have a record of severe mental illness. We believe that by improving patient communication, this will support people with a learning disability to have more choice and control.
What to expect:
- Guidance on improving communication between health providers and people with a learning disability
- Workshops run by NHS England, CHANGE and Grapevine and others, co-led by people with a learning disability
- Advice on how to support people with a learning disability to have more choice and control over their medication
