Resource Description

This 1 hour 31-minute webinar was delivered under the Primary Care Enhancement for People with Intellectual Disability program (PCEP).

People with intellectual disability experience poor health outcomes in comparison to the general population. Many common health conditions are missed or poorly managed in this population group.

Approximately 90% of people with intellectual disability take medication/s. Medication management is important in ensuring that medicines are taken safely. Safeguarding practices involve checking that appropriate medication is prescribed, take, and ongoing monitoring of medicine use. 

People with intellectual disability have the right to receive good health care. This webinar focused on providing information on how to better prescribe medication and support people with intellectual disability.
