This webinar seeks to raise awareness of the physical health needs of people with intellectual disability as well as explore key determinants of health inequities. This is an opportunity to review new ideas and initiatives that aim to improve the quality of healthcare for this group.
Join us to hear from a multidisciplinary expert panel as they review major physical health conditions that people with intellectual disability experience. Participants will be able to reflect on causes of health inequities, including those exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. You'll also hear about the latest research in the field as well as practical, service-level interventions that can improve the care that people with intellectual disability receive.
During this session, interact with our experts in a panel discussion with plenty of opportunities to ask them questions and ensure that you gain a rich learning experience from this webinar.
