Counting for Something

Mortality data provides a rich source of information to understand why people with intellectual disability in New Zealand die between 18 and 23 years earlier than the general population. Drawing from her scoping study “Counting for Something” Sharon will outline how deaths of people with intellectual disability are recorded, reported and investigated in New Zealand. She will highlight what measures other countries take and by comparison what little is done in New Zealand. The presentation will identify areas where research and practice might be focused to better address circumstances of premature mortality of people with intellectual disability.
