Image - Positive Cardiometabolic Health for People with an Intellectual Disability: Launch of New Early Intervention Framework and Resources

A new Early Intervention Framework and suite of online resources have been developed to support health professionals to address the specific cardiometabolic health needs of people with an intellectual disability. The Early Intervention Framework guides clinicians through cardiometabolic risk screening, provides intervention strategies tailored to people with an ID, identifies specific syndromes with altered cardiometabolic risk profiles and links to accessible resources for professionals, people with an intellectual disability and carers.

Join a range of experts to discuss these new health resources and learn how to improve cardiometabolic health for people with an intellectual disability. Health professionals, disability workers, people with an intellectual disability and their carers are invited to attend.

Speakers include:

  • Prof Julian Trollor
  • Ms Arahni Sont
  • Dr Jackie Curtis
  • Dr Simon Rosenbaum
  • Prof David Dossetor
  • Dr Aline Smith
  • Scott Farlow MLC

 

Additional speakers will be added as they are confirmed

Resources will be freely available on the 3DN website following the launch
