The Faculty of Psychiatry of Intellectual Disability Annual Conference is a national conference for medical health professionals with a special interest in intellectual disability psychiatry.

Dr Tromans said:

I felt this was a really important topic, as there has been relatively limited work done on addressing the end of life care needs of patients with intellectual disabilities. I would like to thank Dr Satheesh Gangadharan (Consultant Psychiatrist and Honorary Professor at University of Leicester), Dr Hayley Andrews (Consultant Psychiatrist and Honorary Fellow at University of Leicester) and Dr Anu Wani for their support in establishing the ground work for this project, data collection and development of the subsequent research paper, which is currently in press for publication in the Journal of Policy and Practice in Intellectual Disabilities.
