Around 30% to 40% of people with learning disabilities will experience mental health disorders during their lives. Many learning disability nurses and a significant number of mental health nurses are in daily contact with this group, and their complex needs are not often well understood.

* Examines current theory and practice in supporting people with learning disabilities and additional mental health needs
* Evaluates the learning disability nursing contribution to care
* Identifies the key knowledge and skills required by learning disability and mental health nurses and other health care professionals
* Addresses key issues in contemporary practice
* Explores assessment of needs in order to provide needs-led services
