Nice | Challenging behaviour and learning disabilities

learning disabilitiesThis is a new guideline from Nice on managing challenging behaviour in people with learning disabilities. Most of it is fairy obvious. I’ve highlighted a few points.

Behaviours may be to communicate, to provide sensory stimulation, to avoid demands or to attract attention.

Consider the patient’s environment, relationships and medications among other things. Look for any recent changes in these.
