In the context of the pandemic, the rapid mobilisation and actions of the disability community have worked to keep people with IDD safe. But as Australia moves to the next phase and eases restrictions, opens up businesses and services, it is time to pause and ask ourselves as providers of essential services, 'have we done enough?', 'have we successfully managed the risk?', 'is there more we need to learn?' and 'is there more we need to do?'
This webinar explores these questions in the context of the pandemic shining a spotlight on disability vulnerabilities.Â Professor Lennox speaks to the multiple compounding factors that act to heighten levels of risk to people with IDD and what every provider needs to know and practice to strengthen their pandemic preparedness.
