Abstract

There is growing awareness of the importance of evidence-based medicine in guiding health care delivery. This paper reviews the evidence pertinent to the delivery of primary health care to people with an intellectual disability. Research concerning issues of health status, specialist knowledge of health care, and barriers and solutions to health care delivery for people with an intellectual disability is presented and discussed. Recommendations for future evidence-based research are made, including suggested areas of importance.
