Webinar - COVID-19 pandemic: Prioritising the mental and physical health and well-being of people with disability
Australians continue to work hard to flatten the curve to protect those most vulnerable to experiencing poor physical and mental health outcomes related to COVID-19. Importantly, this has bought us critical time to undertake national pandemic planning and implementation, identify those most at risk, and respond accordingly.
This recorded webinar is available to all disability service providers and health care providers across Australia. NDS thanks the Queensland Government for their continued financial support.
Join Gordon Duff, General Manager, Sector Development and Research, NDS, leading an important dialogue with an esteemed panel of health and disability experts, on how we can best work together to navigate the challenges faced by people with disability and their supporters during this pandemic.
