The Department of Developmental Disability Neuropsychiatry (3DN) at UNSW Sydney has launched two new e-Learning modules:

  • Cardiometabolic health for people with intellectual disability – understanding risk
  • Cardiometabolic health for people with intellectual disability – screening and intervention strategies

The modules can be freely accessed at idhealtheducation.edu.au

By completing these courses, health professionals will develop an understanding of the specific cardiometabolic risk factors that affect people with intellectual disability. The modules build on general clinical assessment and intervention skills, and examine ways to adapt these skills to support cardiometabolic health in people with intellectual disability.

The modules belong to a wider suite of resources on Positive Cardiometabolic Health for People with Intellectual Disability, including an early intervention framework; online resources for clinicians, carers and people with intellectual disability; and new podcasts for health professionals on responsible psychotropic prescribing to people with intellectual disability. All resources can be accessed from the 3DN website at: https://3dn.unsw.edu.au/positive-cardiometabolic-health-ID
