More Information, Less Medication Conference, Birmingham, 12th of September

Dear all,

CHANGE would like to invite you to the ‘More Information, Less Medication conference’ we will be hosting on the 12th September in Birmingham.

CHANGE is working in partnership with the Patient Information Forum to understand and prevent the overuse of anti-psychotic medication for people with a learning disability/autism. NHS England found that 72% of people with a learning disability have been prescribed anti-psychotic 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.

The aim of the event is to improve communication between health providers and people with a learning disability.
