Working with people stuck in hospital

9Many people with disability and complex support needs are spending unnecessary time stuck in hospital despite being clinically ready to leave. The main barriers to a timely hospital discharge are NDIS planning issues and sourcing adequate housing and disability supports.

After this workshop you will be able to:

  • Understand and navigate the NDIS and health interface
  • Identify key personnel and understand their responsibilities in both the NDIS and health system
  • Identify and address barriers to timely discharge
  • Implement the Summer Foundation’s Collaborative Discharge Approach (CDA) to assist a person with disability to leave hospital and live well in the community
  • Lead a collaborative approach across service systems to support a safe discharge from hospital
