How using digital tools and solutions affects personalised care for people with learning disabilities
OxFSN joined forces with Learning Disability England and Brighton and Hove Speak Up to help NHS England understand how using digital solutions (eg online meetings and appointments with medical professionals) will affect the care people with learning disabilities get. The Personalised Care Group at NHS England wanted to know how digital tools and solutions for personalised care can be inclusive and meet the accessibility requirements of people with learning disabilities.
At OxFSN we know as family carers that our family members whether children or adults need support – usually ours as parents – to get medical help. Any changes in how that happened will affect our lives as family carers – for better or worse.
Three reports are available here:
OxFSN’s second Better Together Event was held on the 7th November 2019 at Didcot Civic Hall.
It was attended by 52 Professionals from Health, Social Care, Education and the voluntary sector along with 42 family carers of children or adults with learning disabilities and/or autism. 3 adults with learning disabilities and their supporters also attended.
The event followed the format of a ‘World Café’. This year there were eight tables with one topic on each table. This was as a result of feedback from people attending the previous year’s event who felt they needed more time to discuss fewer topics.
