Save the date for the Melbourne Disability Research to Action Forum being held on Wednesday 15 February 2017 at RMIT University! 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 bring together researchers, practitioners and people with a disability 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!
