New technologies addressing the health inequalities of people with intellectual disabilities

There has been an increasing recognition of the disparity in health suffered by people with an intellectual disability (ID) If the achievement of a good quality of health is an appropriate goal for all, it follows that this aim is also right for those with an intellectual disability. Health may be considered to be an interaction of individual characteristics and environmental factors, the impact of which is greater in people with intellectual disabilities. This brings particular challenges with regards to people with an intellectual disability who are a heterogeneous population with varying needs and who therefore require a complex array of health care provision. The conference will explore the potential of technological solutions and use of clinical information to reduce and eliminate health disparities among people with intellectual disabilities
