Learning Disability session added to All Our Health

Louise Garrahan, 19 April 2023
All Our Health

The All Our Health elearning programme has been updated with a session on learning disabilities.

Developed by NHS England elearning for healthcare and the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities, the resource will help colleagues to provide the best possible support for people with a learning disability and their families, throughout their lifetime.

The resource has been developed in response to latest figures which show that there are approximately 1.3 million people with a learning disability in England who tend to experience poorer physical and mental health and significant health inequalities compared to people without a learning disability.

To help address these inequalities, the session aims to help health, care and the wider public health workforce such as emergency, local authority and integrated care board staff:

  • understand the importance of specific activities and interventions that can affect the wellbeing of people who have a learning disability and their families
  • consider resources and services available locally to support individuals and their families to live more independent, healthier lives, for longer
  • promote holistic family wellbeing

The elearning also features helpful additional resources from organisations including the Royal College of Nursing and Skills for Health’s core capabilities framework for people with a learning disability .

For more information and to access the resource, please visit the Learning Disability session within the All Our Health programme.
