WEBINAR: Prescribing of psychotropic drugs to people with learning disabilities, autism or both: trends and patterns
NHS England’s STOMP campaign was launched in response to concerns raised by Public Health England’s 2015 report that people with learning disabilities, autism or both are inappropriately prescribed psychotropic medication. Last year, Public Health England sought to devise a method to report trends between January 2010 and December 2017 on the extent of this prescribing. This work was commissioned by NHS England to inform their understanding of the impact of the STOMP campaign. On Tuesday 16th July at 12.30pm they will hold a webinar which will explore:
• whether the pattern of prescribing has changed
• what are the next steps
This webinar will be of interest to all GPs, pharmacists, other health and social care professionals and people with lived experience of learning disability, autism or both.
There will be a 15 minute question and answer session after the presentation. You can join the webinar by phone or skype, email LDT@phe.gov.uk for an invitation.
