Overview

Challenging behaviours (also known as behaviours of concern) in people with intellectual disability (ID) have a wide ranging impact on health, quality of life and wellbeing. Interventions to improve outcomes for people with challenging behaviours require a multi-disciplinary approach, and modifying practice requires political and cultural shift.

Over the past decade novel approaches have been implemented internationally with promising improvements in outcomes. ID specialist psychiatrists have long been involved in the management of challenging behaviours, and sharing experience between the RCPsych ID faculty and the Western Pacific Division will provide an important bridge to ensure psychiatrists are up to date with the latest developments.

Challenging behaviours in people with intellectual disability:

  • How can psychiatrists improve outcomes for people with intellectual disability and challenging behaviour?
  • How should psychiatrists successfully advocate to impact policy and instigate change?

Overview

Staff working in healthcare settings experience significant work-related mental health distress.  An interplay of a number of personal, occupational and socio-environmental factors results in high rates of burnout and mental health problems amongst physicians.  This session of Dean’s Grand Rounds focused on exploring and understanding this problem through physician experience, case studies and local data. The session also focused on some unique challenges in low and middle income countries and barriers to seeking mental health support amongst physicians. We heard about an innovative approach developed in the National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS), India to enhance physician wellbeing.
