Research into the health of people with intellectual disabilities has increasingly focused on the occurrence of cancer in this population. Information on the incidence and prevalence of cancer is reviewed in both institutional and community settings. Examples of environmental causation are considered including Helicobacter pylori. Gender-specific issues are considered with respect to both women and men, and screening services discussed. The overall issue of timely diagnosis of cancer in members of this population is reviewed with special reference to avoidable deaths. The need for methodologically sound studies to clarify the epidemiology of cancer in people with intellectual disabilities is discussed.

Impact of training on cognitive representation of challenging behaviour in staff working with adults with intellectual disabilities

Authors:
CAMPBELL Martin, HOGG James
Journal article citation:
Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 21(6), November 2008, pp.561-574.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

Cognitive representations of challenging behaviour among staff may influence therapeutic outcomes. This study looked at how cognitive dimensions of Identity, Cause, Consequences, Emotional Reaction and Treatment/Control are affected by training. A theoretically derived questionnaire was used to measure the impact of an accredited training course. There were two experimental designs: a longitudinal design using participants as their own controls for repeated measures, and a comparative subjects design. All participants were staff working in statutory and voluntary care services. The experimental group outperformed the two control groups by more than would be expected, on the basis of pre-testing, on two of the five dimension measures, Cause and Treatment/Control. It is important to evaluate outcomes of staff training that seeks to improve staff interactions in line with evidence-based practice. Changes in staff cognitive representation of challenging behaviour, as a result of training may be multi-dimensional.

End-of-life and palliative care for people with intellectual disabilities who have cancer or other life-limiting illness: a review of the literature and available resources

Authors:
TUFFREY Irene, HOGG James, CURFS Leopold
Journal article citation:
Journal of Applied Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 20(4), July 2007, pp.331-344.
Publisher:
Wiley-Blackwell

This paper reviews the literature around the need of people with intellectual disabilities for palliative care. A range of databases and the World Wide Web were searched for relevant papers, book chapters, training and information materials, unpublished materials and policy guidelines. Publications from 1995 to 2005 are included. Although there has been a steady increase in published materials in recent years, research data around the palliative care needs of people with intellectual disabilities remain scarce. Case reports are the most prevalent method of exploring pertinent issues. The paper presents an overview of issues identified in the literature, with a particular focus on pain and symptom assessment, ethical issues, service planning and training needs. The authors conclude there are significant gaps in current knowledge and make recommendations for future areas of research and development.
