Event description

Description

Registrations are now open for our next Warrnambool Implementation Workshop on Tuesday 5 December. This workshop has been designed to provide organisations with the most current news and developments concerning the NDIS transition in the Wimmera South West region.

The morning session will include:

    • Presentations from key agencies including; the NDIS, DHHS, NDS and Local Area Coordinator Latrobe Community Health Services
    • A question and answer panel with presenters
    • The opportunity to network with your peers from the region over morning tea and to ask questions of our NDS Sector Engagement Team and other agency representative
    • A targeted presentation on provider travel, participant transport, plan reviews, emergency responses, and psychosocial disability under the NDIS

Presentation: Provider Travel and Participant Transport

This presentation will explain the distinction between provider travel and participant transport. We’ll explore the NDIS provider travel policy, highlighting circumstances where providers may be able to recover provider travel costs and ways to increase efficiencies where they cannot.

Workshop: Requesting a Plan Review and Responding to Crisis

Disability service providers may be asked to support participants during scheduled and unscheduled plan reviews. This session will outline the circumstances, expectations, process and timelines of requesting an unscheduled plan review, as well as considerations when preparing for a scheduled review. In addition we’ll explore the role of service providers and their duty of care in crisis or emergency situations, the flexibility of NDIS funding, the responsibilities of other service sectors and the role of the National Disability Insurance Agency in responding to crisis

Presentation: Psycho-Social Disability under the NDIS

This presentation will provide a broad overview of how Mental Health will be incorporated into the NDIS. The session will build an awareness of the defined Mental Health programs that automatically transition into the Scheme, the supports available to participants with psycho-social disabilities when accessing the Scheme, and the Agency’s strategies in overcoming the distinct challenges associated with the Mental Health and NDIS interface.
