About This Webinar

The seventh Embracing Change webinar focuses on Worker Screening and Worker Requirements for NDIS providers. This webinar is formulated in two parts. In the first part you will learn about worker screening and worker requirements relative to NDIS psychosocial disability workers. In the second half you will hear from a NDIS service provider about their Human Resources and Professional Development systems which give effect to these requirements.

This Webinar is designed to guide you through practical examples that will assist in preparing your desktop audit, self-assessment and onsite audits. You will also have opportunities to ask questions to the panel via our Moderator throughout the webinar.

Hear from:

  • Fran Cole, Director of Policy and Strategy, NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission will speak about worker screening requirements for NDIS service providers including the NDIS Worker Screening Check commencing on 1 February 2021.
  • Laura Dorahy, National Director for Complaints and Reportable Incidents,      NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission will set out the practice behaviours and expectations of workers under the NDIS Code of Conduct and the Incident Management and Complaints Management NDIS Practice Standards; and
  • Kimberley Hibbert, National Manager Strategy and Workforce Development,      Me Well (Mental Health and Wellbeing, Australia) will discuss how Me Well’s is implementing these requirements in their Human Resources and Professional Development systems.

Who should attend this webinar?

This webinar is designed to assist two groups of service providers: 

  • Psychosocial disability service providers registering or re-registering as a registered NDIS provider with the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission; and
  • Community services and NDIS service providers currently not delivering services to people with psychosocial disability.
