Increasing the uptake of Annual Health Checks: Videos

In 2021, Health Innovation West of England were commissioned by NHSE SW to create a suite of videos to assist healthcare professionals in increasing the uptake of Annual Health Checks for people with a learning disability.

A second suite of videos for people with a learning disability, carers and family members who may want to learn more about the check is also available. A number of the videos feature Misfits Theatre Company. Videos also discuss managing oral health to avoid future complications and how a Health Action Plan can be of benefit.

This project was selected by NHS England as an exemplar case study for the LeDeR 2021-22 Action from Learning Report (see pages 25 and 45).

Caring for residents at risk of deterioration: Videos

Health Innovation West of England collaborated to produce a series of free videos and e-learning materials to help carers support residents who are at risk of deterioration. The short training videos are freely available in a YouTube playlist.

These introductory films – which have been watched over 1 million times – help spot the signs of deterioration and serious illness such as sepsis.Each video is around 3-4 minutes each – it will take just over 40 minutes to watch the series.

Flu vaccines and reasonable adjustments: Videos and resources

On behalf of the NHS, Misfits Theatre Company created a video which tackles the misinformation surrounding the flu vaccination and urges people with a learning disability and their carers (paid or unpaid) to get their flu vaccine.

The company also produced a video on how reasonable adjustments can help people with a learning disability and/or autism live longer and healthier lives.
