Independent Specialist Mental Health Pharmacist and PhD Candidate, University of Warwick

My PhD is focusing on following up on the quality of life of people with intellectual disability who have undergone a programme of deprescribing of psychotropic medicines which were prescribed for the management of behaviour that challenges in the absence of a documented mental health diagnosis. This links in with the NHS England STOMP campaign which was developed following the Winterbourne View report together with other evidence demonstrating the overprescribing of these medicines in people with intellectual disability.
