Actions and Detail Panel
Melbourne Disability Research to Action Forum
Wed. 15 February 2017, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm AEDT
The Melbourne Disability Research to Action Forum emphasises applying current research to inform disability service provision. It promises to be highly interactive and engaging, and promises to bring together researchers, disability service providers, people with disabilities and other stakeholders for a stimulating day.
See the draft program on the NDS events page.
This not to be missed, full-day event will feature leading disability researchers and service providers demonstrating the latest findings to inform research-based practice. The NDIS is introducing new approaches to service delivery and innovative opportunities for technology and design, underscoring the critical role of research and evidence-based practice.
The forum aims to build greater research mindedness and capacity in the disability sector, and to showcase how research can be incorporated into disability service design, programs, and practice. The forum will also demonstrate how organisations have achieved success through evidence-based practice and provide examples of people with disabilities, their families, and carers exercising choice and control and participating in research.
Specific sessions will explore the evidence base for critical areas including achieving quality services and service design, housing, interfaces between services, workforce, and inclusion and community participation.
The program is designed for front line practice leaders; CEOs, program managers, policy managers; researchers and students; people with disability, families and carers; and other disability sector stakeholders. All are welcome!
The event will run from 9:00am-4:00pm and drinks, afternoon tea, and networking will follow.
