Registrations are now open for the next Inner Gippsland NDIS Implementation Workshop on Wednesday 31 January 2018. This event will focus on travel, plan reviews and psychosocial disability.

The morning session will include (10:00am – 12:30pm)

  • Presentations from key agencies including the NDIA, DHHS, NDS and Local Area Coordinator, Latrobe Community Health Services
  • A Q&A panel with presenters
  • The opportunity to network with your peers from the region agency representatives

The afternoon session will include (12:30pm – 3:00pm)

  • A light lunch
  • A targeted presentation on provider travel and participant transport, plan reviews and responding to emergency as well as a presentation on psychosocial disability under the NDIS

Presentation: Provider Travel and Participant Transport

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

Workshop: Requesting a Plan Review and Responding to Emergencies

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 NDIA in responding to crisis.

Presentation: Psychosocial 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 psychosocial disabilities when accessing the Scheme, and the Agency’s strategies in overcoming the distinct challenges associated with the mental health and NDIS interface.

Registrations close 24 January 2018.
