We have been commissioned by the South Regional Health Education England Intellectual Disabilities programme to find and share best practice in training people who work in NHS Trusts to support people with learning disabilities. The aim is to support their development to help them achieve better outcomes when working with people with learning disabilities.
NDTi will be working in partnership with people with lived experience (both self-advocates and family carers) to identify good practice examples of training tools and approaches and to explore what is needed to ensure learning is put into practice. We will do this by:
Following analysis of the data collected the team will make a series of recommendations for training models and for what else can be done to support NHS Trust staff to apply what they have learned. We will then work with HEE South ID programme stakeholders to develop a regional awareness campaign to highlight and share the findings and resources from this work.
We have written three reports about what we found:
This literature review is being used more widely in this project to inform the next stages of our project. This includes a Delphi Survey and the topic guides for interviews planned with hospital staff.
