National Disability Insurance Scheme

The NDIS is the future for many allied health service providers and consumers. After working with NDIA policy makers, service providers and consumer groups, we can help your organisation optimise function within this scheme:

  • Transition and integration
  • Research and assessment of opportunity for your business
  • Embedding practices which facilitate choice and control
  • Assistance meeting NDIS service provider requirements

Clinical Governance

From developing professional standards to compliance with internal and external policy and legislation, clinical governance is a wide ranging and vital topic:

  • Development, revision and implementation of progressive standards
  • Competency standards: Ash, Susan; O'Connor, Jackie; Anderson, Sarah; Ridgewell, Emily, & Clarke, Leigh (2015) A mixed-methods research approach to the review of competency standards for orthotist/prosthetists in Australia. International Journal of Evidence-Based Healthcare, 13(2), pp. 93-103.
