Successful Health Screening through Desensitisation for People with Learning Disabilities
About the course
This flexible training and resource pack aims to enable people with a learning disability to successfully access health screening and overcome fear and anxiety they may have about the process; utilising desensitisation. The suggested techniques in the training pack respond directly to evidence of how the health needs of people with a learning disability are not currently being adequately met. It provides a practical evidence-based framework; tools and extensive resources for supporting individuals to have basic health screening through familiarisation and desensitisation. This is essential for ensuring quality of life and the best possible health outcomes; by monitoring and treating the common conditions people with learning disabilities suffer from.
