 Background:

There is much evidence internationally about the health inequalities, and from the UK, the poor quality of hospital care for people with intellectual disabilities. Evidence from Australia and Victoria has been limited however. This study aim was to provide evidence about the processes and practices that enable hospitals to respond to the particular needs of people with intellectual disabilities.
