NDS, DHHS and RMIT University invite you to a forum on restrictive practices in the context of the new NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework.

Aimed at senior managers and directors of disability service organisations, this forum will outline evidence, cover current and future organisational obligations, and offer practical advice, tools and resources to support organisations to better understand, recognise and reduce restrictive practices for people with disability.

Visiting speakers include:

  • Associate Professor Paul Ramcharan, Centre for Applied Social Research, RMIT University. Paul will explain the steps an organisation can take to achieve ‘whole of service’ cultural change to achieve ‘dignity without restraint’. It will show how human rights, choice and zero tolerance frameworks can be implemented with good positive behaviour support to achieve best practice and improve life for people with disability.
  • James Bannister, Manager of Applied Research Projects, National Disability Services. As national manager of the NDS Zero Tolerance initiative James will talk about how providers can build the capacity of frontline workers to recognise and explore alternatives to restrictive practices. Using a human rights approach, he will look at the impact of restrictions on people and staff and the link between restrictive practices and abuse and neglect.
Afternoon tea will be provided.

Please Register ASAP to ensure your place at the Forum.
