Transitioning to the NDIS isnt easy and, as we move further down the path, a range of challenges and complexities have come to light.
Making it happen
With the first stage of the NDIS commencing on July 1, disability service providers have made transitioning to self-directed approaches a top priority.
Other sectors are becoming interested in self-direction too; most notably the aged care sector.
But transitioning isn’t easy and, as we move further down the path, a range of challenges and complexities have come to light.
This conference will explore how these more challenging aspects can be managed. It will do this through a series of presentations from leading thinkers, consumers and progressive organisations.
You will learn:
The key ingredients of a successful transition
How to provide greater choice and control to people with cognitive impairment
How to maintain quality without directly managing staff
How to ensure workforce competency in the self-directed approach
How to thrive in the new consumer-driven market-place
Benefits of attending
+Gain further clarity on the NDIS
+Hear local & international best-practice
+Explore how to extend choice & control to all consumers
+Learn how to manage the workforce/staffing challenges
“The grounds for self-directed funding are strong. However, national implementation poses challenges.”
