Making reasonable adjustments for people with learning disabilities in the management of constipation
This report is about constipation, its causes and how it can affect people. It describes recent research findings about bowel management to avoid constipation and the management of constipation if it occurs. It presents a holistic approach to bowel care and management of constipation.
The report has links to resources as well as descriptions of bowel management work. Stories from family carers show very acutely the extent to which this apparently simple issue can blight some people’s lives. There is also a shorter briefing paper with the key points.
