NDIS education and training for health providers - Register Now

 28 July 2020

 Primary health providers enjoyed our NDIS education sessions so much last year, we’re doing them again! This time we’re running the training as pre-recorded online sessions. 

Our four modules will improve your understanding of the NDIS and the role of primary health providers when working with people with disability. You will gain a greater understanding of the NDIS, the health and disability interface, and the whole of life aspects of disability.

The training is designed for health professionals, General Practitioners, Allied Health Professionals, Practice Nurses and Practice Managers.

The training is being delivered by Council for Intellectual Disability.

Attendees will be issued certificates of attendance once they have filled the evaluation form for each module.
