Presented by Dr Henrietta Trip, 26 August 2021
What is the webinar about?
Diabetes for people with learning, intellectual and developmental disability is often not diagnosed, under reported and, as a result, may be poorly managed. Henrietta was part of a team through the IASSIDD (International Association for the Scientific Study of Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities) – Health Special Interest Research Group which developed the International Consensus Guidelines: Reasonable Adjustments in the Management of Type 2 Diabetes in Adults with Intellectual & Developmental Disabilities (2021). This presentation provides an introduction to these guidelines which is linked to concepts of self-management as identified, through research, by the people themselves.
