Webinar: JSNAs, learning disabilities and autism

16th October 12:30pm

People with learning disabilities suffer inequities in health which start early in life and die sooner than the general population. They should be specifically included in JSNAs to identify current and future health and wellbeing needs in a way that will inform future service planning. This webinar will:

  • explore to what extent the needs of people with learning disabilities or autism are currently included in Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs)
  • look at what data and evidence is available about the needs of people with learning disabilities or autism that can be used to inform JSNAs
  • signpost to some examples of where the needs of people with learning disabilities or autism have been covered well in JSNAs
  • open a discussion with attendees about how local plans are put together and ideas for other sources of data and evidence

This webinar is for colleagues who are involved in any way in putting together JSNAs in their area, those who are keen to see more about the health and wellbeing of people with learning disabilities or autism included in their local JSNA and public health colleagues who link in with colleagues involved in preparing JSNAs.
