The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training on Learning Disability and Autism is named after Oliver McGowan, whose death highlighted the need for health and social care staff to have better skills, knowledge and understanding of the needs for autistic people and those with a learning disability.
The training is integral to ensuring that the health and social care workforce across BSW has the right skills and knowledge to provide, safe, compassionate and informed care which will help address the stark health and care inequalities that people with a learning disability and autistic people face.
