Adults with learning disabilities are more likely to be admitted to hospital due to conditions that can often be treated and managed in the community with appropriate care. These are known as ambulatory care sensitive conditions. (ASC). Emergency admissions for such conditions raise the question of how well care outside the hospital is being organised. The most common ASCs amongst adults with learning disabilities are convulsions or epilepsy, constipation and diabetes.

This event will look at what is known about ASCs and how we can improve management of them to reduce emergency hospital admissions for people with learning disabilities.

Who should attend?

The events are aimed at those who have responsibility for commissioning and providing healthcare services for people with learning disabilities.
