Improving Health Assessments for People with an Intellectual Disability

Eilish Burke, Trinity College Dublin

Learn how to support people with intellectual disability in health assessments

Detecting poor health and supporting people with an intellectual disability in managing their health can be challenging for healthcare professionals.

During this course, you will gain valuable knowledge that you can transfer into your daily practice on how to include people with an intellectual disability in health assessments.

You will expand your knowledge through information and techniques underpinned by the world-leading longitudinal study on ageing and intellectual disability, the IDS-TILDA study.

This course is for healthcare professionals, healthcare workers, and care supporters working with people with an intellectual disability. You do not need any prior experience as the course is designed to be usable by all levels of healthcare professionals.
