Let’s Talk Health

Disability and Access to Health

Did you know?

We all experience unpredictable health events in our lives, but for people with disabilities it can be hard to maintain good health or manage health issues coming just around the corner. People with disabilities require the same access to health care as other Australians but experience difficulties receiving care. Many people with disabilities also have poorer general health than other Australians, and this poor health status can be unrelated to their disability.

Are you?

- Involved in pharmacy, general practice, dental care, allied health, complementary health or do you work in another health care setting?

- Involved in health policy, funding, and quality improvement or promoting better responses to community diversity?

- Interested in positive health outcomes for people with a disability?

Then join us for an interactive game based dialogue.

You will hear from a panel of people with a disability and their families as they journey through the issues, gaps, challenges, barriers and supports needed for good health and improved access to health care services. The panel is an opportunity to hear about ways we can improve care and will also feed into work to address broader social and economic inclusion priorities the ACT Government has agreed to progress under the National Disability Strategy.
