The Trouble with Poo

On Wednesday 27th November, at the Royal College of Nursing, Beyond Words launched a brand new story to get people talking about poo!

It’s been estimated that up to 50% of people with learning disabilities may suffer from constipation, compared to about 10% of the general population. Constipation can be easy to treat if it is identified early, but without prompt treatment, the condition can cause pain, distress and in extreme cases death.

The book will be an invaluable resource for friends, families and health and care professionals to share with those they support to help reduce health inequalities for people with learning disabilities.

The Trouble with Poo is available as a paperback and an ebook.
