Autism in inclusion health
This eLearning, developed by the London Network of Nurses and Midwives Homelessness Group, will help you support autistic people in inclusion health populations.
Why should I take this course?
Significant numbers of people in the UK have neurocognitive differences that affect their experiences. Autism is one of these.
Inclusion health groups are those who face the greatest barriers to accessing healthcare. This includes people experiencing homelessness, undocumented migrants and Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities.
There is increasing evidence that autistic people are likely to be in inclusion health groups at a higher proportion than they are in the general population, and that they face a lack of understanding from staff. They also face significant additional barriers to accessing appropriate care alongside a high level of physical and mental health need.
