The importance of investigating and addressing the needs of palliative care patients with intellectual disabilities (IDs) has been increasingly recognised in the past decade. The number of people with IDs in the aging population is increasing, with the result that there has been a rise in the number of people with IDs presenting with cancer, heart and respiratory disease, and dementia. Two recent studies have suggested methods and strategies, for implementation in palliative care services, to better support such patients.
