Recent controversies over care for people with intellectual disabilities have highlighted significant challenges and difficulties in providing appropriate and high-quality care, particularly in dealing with challenging behaviours. Recent research from UCL suggests that an established and cost-neutral intervention can reduce challenging behaviours and deliver real improvements through specialist services.
This seminar brings together researchers, carers’ organisations and policy-makers to consider the implications of research into care for people with intellectual disabilities, and how research findings might be effectively translated into policy. It will consider how different groups involved in care for people with intellectual disabilities can learn from research, and how robust evidence-informed policies on care delivery can be developed.
Followed by a drinks reception in the South Cloisters, UCL Wilkins Building.
