6 May 2019

The Council for Intellectual Disability have been commissioned by CESPHN to deliver a series of ten unique sessions, aiming to increase understanding of the NDIS and the role of primary health providers when working with people with a disability, their families and carers.

The series will cover the responsibilities of the NDIS, Health/Mental Health and provide an overview of the how the NDIS works. Sessions will address how health professionals can assist people with a disability to access the NDIS using the Access Request Form, and will provide strategies for writing reports and providing evidence.

The series will also include information on distinct participant pathways to the NDIS, including people with complex support needs and people with a psychosocial disability. The series will also cover how the NDIS funds support, and the review and appeals process.

Attendees will gain a greater understanding of the NDIS, the Health/Mental Health and disability interface and the whole of life aspects of disability. This will contribute to improved health outcomes and access to services for people with disability.

Target Audience:

General practitioners, allied health professionals, practice nurses and practice managers.

This event runs for approximately two hours. Registrations essential, venues and the series sessions topics will be advertised soon.
