Training to deliver story-based learning using Margaret’s story.


Margaret is a lady with a learning disability, she tells us of her journey through cancer from diagnosis, treatment, recurrence to palliative care.

Margaret’s story allows participants to think about their individual roles and organisations and how they effectively support people.

Following the training you will have the skills and resources to use Margaret’s story to raise awareness of communication, exploring what good care looks like.


The 2019 LeDeR report1 tells us people with a learning disability have poorer health dying up to 27 years younger, cancer is often diagnosed late, there are issues of diagnostic overshadowing, poor access to investigations due to lack of reasonable adjustments and assumptions of ability or willingness to tolerate tests.

We are all responsible for ensuring people are treated fairly and have good access to health and social care.

Who is it for:
People working within; primary and secondary care, social care and third sector organisations.
