Putting person-centred care at the heart of learning disability services

Paul Keenan Assistant professor, Intellectual disability nursing, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland

Essential facts

In Ireland about 28,388 people with a learning disability receive services funded by the state and the voluntary sector (Hourigan et al 2018). Most support is provided in institutions and large congregated settings, although some individualised independent supported living exists, and this is increasing slowly (Keenan 2017a).
