As providers continuously strive towards best practice service provision, can cooperative capability become a strategic advantage for a service provider while also improving client outcomes?

In this session hosted by The Hopkins Centre in collaboration with NDS we would like to hear from you, how cooperative engagement works in the competitive NDIS environment.

As a provider:

  • is cooperative engagement something you are already doing?
  • what barriers to effectively working with other providers are you experiencing?
  • are there benefits to your organisational and participant outcomes?

Join with researchers, providers, and peak bodies to learn about current evidence around cooperative engagement and share your experiences at the local level.

Discussion groups for disability service providers

For providers of support services, there will be smaller discussion groups held following the presentations and Q and A. Providers have the opportunity to select one of four topic groups to join:

  • Topic 1: Information and Communication: this group will focus on the access to and sharing of information (between and about NDIS participants, support plans, providers, NDIS rules, etc.)
  • Topic 2: Roles and Responsibility: this group will focus on how to ensure support providers, participants and families develop clear understandings of roles and tasks.
  • Topic 3: Accountability: this group will focus on how decision and actions are monitored and responded to.
  • Topic 4: Competence and Consistency: this group will focus on the skills and practices needed to deliver quality and reliable supports and trusted multi-agency relationships.

Who Should Attend?

Direct support workers and their team leaders, allied health providers, CEO’s and quality team managers
