Learning Disabilities Complex Needs ISSUES OF TRANSITION for young people with learning disabilities plus other complex needs Dr Sally Cheseldine JIT Associate
"Why is it so difficult to put (good transitions) into practice" Mittler, 2007.
Who? What does a good Transitions Process look like? What range of services is required? Who pays? Evaluation and review
WHO? "LD plus complex needs" Issues: Consistency of definition; Age cut off Robust data; Out of area
WHO? - RECOMMENDATIONS National/local agreement on definition Sharing information Health Boards responsible for regional data Forward planning/role of Public Health
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE? ONE plan: Start at 14th birthday Named person in C/F & Adult services Annual reviews/planning meetings Good communication/information Clear budget plan Examples of good practice
SO: Clear Pathway Funding clarity Information for families User involvement Adult services MUST engage
RANGE OF SERVICES: Jointly funded; local; Person-centred; effective Trained workforce
FUNDING? Move from out-of-area: Bridging? Innovation Rainy-day pot?
EVALUATION & REVIEW Key service characteristics
Changing Demography of people with learning disabilities Dr. Michael Brown Lecturer and Nurse Consultant Edinburgh Napier University and Elaine Kwiatek Project Manager Learning Disability MCN LEARNING DISABILITIES MANAGED CARE NETWORK
Aims of the presentation Overview of demographics issues Overview of health needs evidence Workforce issues Challenges and opportunities for the future
The wider determinants of health
Wider issues – Poverty & learning disabilities Poverty can increase the risk of a child having an impairment… Having a disabled child can also mean that parents find it harder to maintain full-time employment, their housing can be inadequate for their childs needs, and expenditure on basic needs is increased. Prime Ministers Strategy Unit, 2005
Changing demographics of the learning disability population Estimated 120, 000 children and adults with intellectual disabilities in Scotland – few ever in hospital –Projected 11% increase over next 10 years –Increasing learning disability subpopulation –Ageing learning disability subpopulation –Increasing number of people with complex learning disabilities People with learning disabilities have greater health needs Health inequalities exist and need to be addressed Health needs never historically addressed
What the evidence tells us… Pre term infants with multiple disabilities Foetal alcohol syndrome disorder ADHD Autism Spectrum Disorder Increasing numbers of people with complex physical disabilities Increasing numbers of older people with complex needs and end of life care needs Changing demographic phenomenon Therefore increases at both ends of the lifespan
Common health needs Gastrointestinal disorders Respiratory disease Cardiovascular disease Epilepsy Cancers Haematological disorders Ophthalmic disorders Musculoskeletal disorders Accidents and trauma Additional care needs due to: - Autism Spectrum Disorder Communication disorders Challenging behaviours Mental illness
For example…. The UK Nursing Workforce The UK registered nursing workforce, as with many others in the developed world, is ageing. In in 10 was aged less than 30 years. One in three was aged 50 or older. Over 200,000 nurses on the register were aged 50 or older in (Buchan, 2009) Some learning disability nurses can retire at 55 creating a workforce gap Reflected in the workforce as a whole?
Workforce Planning in a Context of an Increasing Need for Services At the recent RCN Learning Disability Nursing summit Professor Carpenter, National Director for Special Educational Needs, stated that there are now 950,000 children with learning disabilities in the UK, a 25% increase in the past 5 years. The number of children with profound and multiple learning disabilities has increased by 29 % over the same period. Children of today – adults of tomorrow…. 21
What has this got to do with people with learning disabilities?
Equality, inclusion and outcomes & the sweety shop Look and not touch? Equal access to health & social care will present challenges for the future Access & support has to lead to equal outcomes & wider inclusion Enabling access to services has to lead to person-centred care & outcomes
Changes in demand for support Increases in lone parent families Increasing rates of maternal employment Increases in % of older people with Learning Disability where parents have died or are frail Changing expectations among families regarding the persons right to an independent life
The situation currently Co-morbidity will increase, with greater prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders, pneumonia, sensory impairments, epilepsy, dental disease and osteoporosis in the LD population – the list goes on Increasing demands on mainstream healthcare systems that are struggling to effectively meet needs now and will do so in the future Increasing demands on specialist health and social care systems now and in the future ? Policy mismatch - increasing demand V decreasing funds
Addressing the challenges of the future today The Numbers of People with LD is increasing and will continue to increase The level of healthcare needs experienced by people with LD is increasing and becoming more and more complex Workforce demographics Knowledge, skills and experience of the workforce Models of care to meet changing needs Funding mismatch Learning from previous experiences of joint working
The Need for Learning Disability Practitioners in the Future There is a clear need for specialist learning disability practitioners in the future HOWEVER… The role and function will be one of knowledgeable and expert practitioner who can educate, assess, plan, coordinate, safeguard and deliver evidence-based interventions for a population with high and complex care needs
The future direction?
Scanning the horizon to identify need and plan for the future
Where we want to get to …
