Event description

Description

We are delighted to invite you to a one-day Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) study conference. At this conference we will discuss the rationale for the NIHR-HTA funded PBS study and present the trial findings including clinical outcomes and health economic evaluation. Talks will also focus on carers’ and service users’ experience of taking part in the PBS study and the results of the process evaluation. Speakers will report on international perspectives on PBS and there will be a round table with invited speakers from NHS England, clinicians, parents and trainers to discuss the implications of the study for clinical practice, policy makers and commissioners. This event will be live tweeted by The Mental Elf and the Learning Disabilities Elf.

  • Dominic Slowie (National Clinical Director for Learning Disability, NHS England)
