People with intellectual disability often have health needs that go
unrecognised and untreated; this may be because of difficulties in
communication, diagnostic overshadowing, discrimination or
indifference. There is concern that public health measures aimed at
reducing the main health killers in the population will not address
these issues for people with intellectual disability and may
preferentially widen the inequality that already exists. This book
is a comprehensive and systematic review of physical and mental
health co-morbidities in people with intellectual disability. Such
an evidence base is vital in shaping public health policy,
healthcare commissioning and the development of more effective
healthcare systems, as well as supporting better understanding and
practice at an individual clinical level. This is essential reading
for policy makers and commissioners of services, as well as
individual practitioners across mainstream and specialist health
and social care, in considering not only service developments but
practice at the coalface.
