Challenging behaviour and psychotropic medication - finding ways forward for adults with intellectual disability

Organiser: Intellectual Disability Forum, Royal Society of Medicine

Venue: Royal Society of Medicine, 1 Wimpole Street, London W1G 0AE

Date: 23 May 2017

CPD: 6 hours

The use of psychotropic medication, particularly antipsychotics, in managing challenging behaviour in people with intellectual disability is controversial and has received widespread attention. In 2015 NHS England issued a ‘Call to Action’ to substantially reduce the number of people with intellectual disability who are prescribed psychotropic drugs. However, the ways in which this will be achieved have not been determined and there remain considerable challenges in meeting this goal. This meeting brings together experts with differing perspectives and from a range of backgrounds to promote dialogue and discuss ways forward with this complex and pressing issue. Individual clinical dilemmas will be discussed together with broader systems changes that can improve the overall care offered to people with intellectual disability.
