The Webinar presentation team consisted of Nicola Bowtell and Professor Gyles Glover, Co-Director, Learning Disabilities Observatory Team PHE, Irene Tuffrey-Wijne Associate Professor in Intellectual Disability & Palliative Care from Kingston and St George’s and Louise Corson and Clare Price from NHS England.
By joining, the aim from the speakers was to ensure that the audience would:-
The session was wholly informative and, for people who may not be aware of some of the issues that face people with a learning disability and their support networks when addressing end of life topics, it opened up the discussion of some of the additional areas to consider.
What was also a valuable resource during the session was the ability to interact with the other attendees by way of the comments section. There were web links, suggestions and demonstrations of good practice. It was a really dynamic forum to learn and share.
I have spoken to Kerry Archer-Dutton, Project Administrator National End of Life Care Intelligence Network PHE, today to see if we can publish the slides from the webinar to share with you and Kerry has kindly informed me that they are working to upload the event in a video format and as soon we have the go ahead we will publish that here for you on our blog.
There are some very good examples of information resources which can be found on the PCPLD Network website HERE
