Reasonable adjustments to provide equitable assessment, screening and treatment of osteoporosis for people with learning disabilities: A feasibility study.

Project Details


People with learning disabilities (LDs) are a high risk population for developing osteoporosis, and twice as likely to develop bone fractures, yet they experience barriers to accessing osteoporosis services. This study aims to work with 30 adults with LDs and their carers to make reasonable adjustments to osteoporosis assessment, screening (DXA scan) and treatment processes, to learn how these processes can be tailored more inclusively towards people with LDs.
