This book engages with the current focus on health promotion as part of the preventative health agenda and examines the physical health considerations of adult intellectual disability patients. Research has shown that the prevalence of certain diseases is much higher in adults with intellectual disabilities than the equivalent non-disabled population. The multiplicity of intellectual disabilities with other disease can lead to poor patient management. This book highlights the commonest physical health issues that should be monitored in the intellectual disability patient.
