The annual LeDeR Report (Learning from Lives and Deaths People with a Learning Disability and autistic people) was published yesterday. The report showed that the median age of death of people with learning disability was tragically 20 years younger than the rest of the population. The report also notes that Reviewers found DNACPR documentation and processes were appropriate in only 60% of the deaths in 2021 where a DNACPR was in place. Compared to previous years, there was an increase in the proportion of deaths in which the reviewer was unable to determine whether the process for making a DNACPR decision had been correctly followed and a slightly larger proportion with non-compliance to DNACPR protocol around the time of death.
