COVID-19 has provided us with an opportunity to explore how we can work together to facilitate effective and timely discharge for people who are expected to stay longer than 90 days with admission to brain injury, spinal cord injury, burns and general rehabilitation wards with care equipment and accommodation requirements.
This Community of Practice has been established to provide a learning and sharing opportunity for clinicians and NDIS staff using a case study and discussion format. Opportunities to explore processes and approaches for health and NDIS staff will be available.
This event will be hosted by the Summer Foundation . Established in 2006, the Summer Foundation is committed to supporting the disability, health and aged care systems to work more effectively with younger people in nursing homes. The Summer Foundation has developed practice guides, training materials, an online learning platform and new models for government and non-government organisations to support people with a disability and those caring with them.
Today’s session is NDIS Housing Options and Pathways for hospital clinicians. Hospital clinicians will gain understanding in what housing options exist for NDIS participants in the context of discharge planning from hospital, including mainstream housing and SDA.
PLEASE NOTE: This event is open to NSW hospital clinicians ONLY and will not be recorded. Attendees will receive a copy of the slides and post-training materials after the event
Virtual only – via Microsoft Teams. Link will be sent to registered attendees prior to the event.
