The Melbourne Disability Research to Action Forum will be held on Wednesday 15 February 2017 at RMIT University. This full-day forum emphasises applying current research to inform disability service provision. It promises to be highly interactive and engaging, and hopes to bring together researchers, disability service providers, people with disabilities, and other disability stakeholders.

This not to be missed event will feature leading disability researchers and service providers showcasing 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.

Brought to you through a partnership between NDS Victoria’s Research Advisory Group, the NDS Centre for Applied Disability Research (CADR) and RMIT University’s Centre for Applied Social Research, the forum will focus on incorporating research findings into practice and using research to explore new disability service opportunities and understand implications of service provision under the NDIS.

Please see the draft forum for specific presentations.

The program is designed for:
• Front line practice leaders
• CEOs, program managers, policy managers
• Researchers and students
• People with disability, families and carers
• Other disability sector stakeholders
