This chapter builds on the information within Chapter 4 and gives more in-depth consideration to the practicalities of accurate nursing assessments and writing outcome-focused care plans. It provides detailed information on important considerations when planning nursing interventions with people with intellectual disabilities and their carer/carers, including the role of advocacy, life planning, client health records, consent process, making best interests decisions, vulnerability, and safeguarding children and adults. It adds to this practical information by providing information on the necessary wider considerations for effective nursing and collaborative interdisciplinary and inter-agency working across the UK and the Republic of Ireland, including care pathways, health action planning, health facilitation, case management, and direct care payments.
