Event description

Description

Allied health clinicians are invited to attend a forum about allied health services for Tasmanian people with disability or developmental delay.

We know there is an existing shortage of allied health services in rural and remote areas of the State, and we expect increased demand as the NDIS continues to roll out.


National Disability Services Tasmania is carrying out community consultation to develop and implement strategies to better meet the needs of people with disability in rural and remote areas of the State.


We want to disuss the following topics with clinicians:

  • What is and isn't working will with allied health and the NDIS
  • How to attract allied health clinicians to work in disability in Tasmania
  • How to retain allied health clinicians working in disability in Tasmania
  • The use of allied health assistants in a hub-and-spoke model
  • The use of telehealth models of services delivery
  • Clinical training requirements for behaviour support plan writing


You will also hear an update from Dr Kim Bulkeley, Scholarly Teaching Fellow, Occupational Therapy at Sydney University, on what is working in other rural and remote areas of Australia.


For further information, please contact: Keren Shanley (03) 6212 7302 or email: keren.shanley@nds.org.au
