  • Question and answer session
Learn about the complexities of working with people with disability who are stuck in hospital and need NDIS funding to facilitate a timely discharge.

  • Support a person with disability in hospital to gain access to the NDIS
  • Complete the necessary documentation required in the NDIS planning phase 
  • Support a person to obtain an NDIS plan that is in line with their needs and preferences
  • Understand responsibilities of the health system and the NDIS

Why should I attend this workshop?

The pathway from hospital to the community for people with disability and complex needs is characterised by delayed discharges and prolonged admissions. 

Many NDIS participants remain in hospital for much longer than they need to, often well beyond when they are medically ready to discharge.
