In the second of three articles, Gwen Moulster and colleagues describe the structure of a proposed framework for learning disability nursing, and associated guidance and supporting tools

This article, the second in a three-part series, describes a new framework for learning disability practice. It is intended to empower nurses to update their practice, ensure good health outcomes and improve the care experience of people with learning disabilities, and their family, carers and friends. Devised to help nurses work consistently in a structured, evidence-based and reflective way, the framework takes into account their experience and intuitive skills, and the individuality of each person who has learning disabilities. When referring to the framework, learning disability nurses should ensure that healthcare objectives are based on such person-centred aspirations as well as the nurses’ healthcare goals.
