National conference to 'Raise the bar' on outcomes for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities


#1

Friday 2 November, University of Birmingham
Raising the bar II ~ Improving health, lives and outcomes for people with profound and multiple learning disabilities

A year on from the launch of the ‘Core & Essential Service Standards: Supporting people with profound and multiple learning disabilities’, we are gathering to reflect on progress and share successes of ‘the standards in action’. Come and join us on this inspiring day.

This year’s annual conference brings together practitioners and families, students and academics, services and providers from Health, Education and Care to add to this much-needed momentum for change. [not-for-profit event]

These co-produced Core and Essential Service Standards aim to raise the bar on expectations and improve the standards of care for this, too often overlooked, group of individuals with profound and multiple learning disabilities. LeDeR’s recent report noted the mean age of death within this group to be 41 years - not because of their disabling conditions, but due to the inequalities in health and care that they experienced. Join us and be part of this momentum for change!
