Webinar: Learning Disability and Pharmacy

Tuesday 26th September 2017, 12:30-1pm

People with learning disabilities are at increased risk of a number of health conditions and may therefore be prescribed multiple medications. Pharmacy teams see many people with learning disabilities and are in a position to provide advice about healthy lifestyles and medications for common health problems.

In this webinar we will be looking at:

  • the various roles of pharmacy services
  • what we know about the particular problems faced by, and the needs of, people with learning disabilities in relation to medication and pharmacy services
  • reasonable adjustments and resources that can be used to best support these people
  • examples of good practice

This webinar is aimed at all health and social care staff who are involved with, or have an interest in the health and care of people with a learning disability. For an invitation to join email LDT@phe.gov.uk
