Ring et al (2018) conducted an economic analysis to determine if learning disability nurses, using a competency framework intervention for the management of epilepsy in adults with learning disabilities, can cost-effectively improve clinical and quality-of-life outcomes when compared with treatment as usual.


Economic analysis suggested that the competency framework intervention was likely to be cost-effective, primarily because of a reduction in the costs of supporting participants compared with treatment as usual. The authors suggested that there may be a role for the framework in enhancing the cost-effectiveness of support for people with epilepsy and an intellectual disability (ID).
