ARNA Webinar | Transition from rehab to the community

ARNA Webinar | Transition from rehab to the community
Transition from rehabilitation settings to community via the NDIS for people with complex needs

Session Overview:
Rehabilitation and recovery are vexed issues for the NDIS. There are areas of overlap in the responsibilities across health systems and the NDIS, and challenges for rehabilitation teams in ensuring continuity in recovery for patients as they move into the NDIS, particularly those with complex support needs, including those with communication and behaviour support needs. Deb Farrell and Alan Blackwood will explore the key issues and provide practice examples of planning for transition of people with very complex support needs from rehabilitation settings to community via the NDIS.

What will be covered:
  • Guide to preparing for NDIS planning and community transition with the person with complex needs
  • Government targets for addressing the issue of young people in residential aged care (YPIRAC) and what this means in practice
  • Case studies of people with very complex support needs transitioning back to the community after rehab to illustrate some of the challenges and outcomes
  • Report on NDIS funded rehab/disability services interface project the Alliance conducted in NSW in 2019
