The Frith Prescribing Guidelines for People with Intellectual Disabilityprovides comprehensive guidance on prescribing for patients with intellectual disability as well as general information on the clinical care of this important population.

The guidelines have been conceived and developed by clinicians working in intellectual disability services. They are based on both the latest evidence and expert opinion to provide a consensus approach to prescribing as part of a holistic package of care, and include numerous case examples and scenarios. New to this third edition is improved coverage of children and the role of primary care teams.

The Frith Prescribing Guidelines for People with Intellectual Disabilityremains a practical guide for busy clinicians and a valuable reference for all primary and secondary health care professionals caring for people with intellectual disability.
