Our Projects

STOMP

Zoom

STOMP stands for stopping over medication of people with a Learning Disability and/or Autism.
 

Zoom

The aims of STOMP are to:
• encourage people to have regular check-ups about their medicines
• make sure doctors and other health professionals involve people, families and support staff in decisions about medicines
• inform everyone about non-drug therapies and practical ways of supporting people so they are less likely to need as much medicine, if any.

Zoom

At the Barnet Learning Disability Service, we are signed up to delivering STOMP in our local community

We are committed to prescribing medication only where there is evidence that this is the most appropriate intervention. We work closely with other health and social care colleagues to deliver a Positive Behaviour Support approach to challenging behaviour

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (LeDeR) Programme

Zoom

People with learning disabilities were three times more likely to die from causes that could have been avoided by good medical care.

Zoom

The Confidential Inquriy into premature deaths (CIPOLD) recommended that deaths of peole with a learning disability are reviewed to make sure we are learning lessons.  The Learning disabilties mortality review program is a national initative to look at the outcomes of these reviews and make changes to improve the health care.

Barnet has a local steering group, looking at the deaths of people in Barnet. Our findings so far mirror those of the of the national program and we are working as a multi agency team to make positive changes as a result of this learning.
