Supporting People with Learning Disabilities in Health and Social Care, Paperback / softback Book

Supporting People with Learning Disabilities in Health and Social Care Paperback / softback

Edited by Eric Broussine, Kim Scarborough

Description

This reflective and evidence-based book will equip students as well as professionals who work with people with learning disabilities in primary, secondary and specialist healthcare settings, with the knowledge and skills they need to work effectively with people with learning disabilities. Chapters - written by leading academics and practitioners in the learning disabilities field - examine and discuss core issues, while a case-study approach ensures a solid grounding in practical skills.

This practical element is further reinforced by the inclusion of service-user and practitioner 'voices', whose lived experiences make the book even more engaging, as well as a range of reflective exercises and regular opportunities for readers to self-audit their learning. Reflecting the multi-professional nature of services for people with learning disabilities, this book will help practitioners and students make a real difference to the lives of people with learning disabilities who access health and social care environments.
