The Learning Disabilities and Autism Flexible Learning Solution
The UEA team were commissioned to develop a flexible learning solution designed to improve the acute care experience of people with a learning disability or autism and their families. Central to this project was to push forward the QiPP agenda and to provide a package that would be truly accessible and flexible and have maximum impact at all levels of service delivery.
The brief was to draw together the best practice and resources already available, to identify gaps and to develop additional resources which would be accessible and enable development of the NHS acute care workforce who work closely with service users and their families.

Any practitioner, service user or family member can also access the range of tools and modules freely. The aim is to ensure that these resources are truly accessible and have maximum impact of the care and experience of people with a learning disability, or autism and their families.
An optional flexible portfolio-based assessment can be undertaken to gain academic credits from UEA as part of on-going CPD.
