Session description:
Many adult physicians are involved with treating and supporting patients living with disabilities. They can sometimes feel ill equipped in handling these often complex and challenging situations. This session will help clinicians better understand and appropriately respond to the needs of patients living with disabilities.



Session Outcomes:
• Appreciate a consumer perspective on what living with a disability means
• Understand what NDIS is, what it can provide and how physicians can constructively engage with NDIS to meet their patients’ needs
• Gain a better understanding of what a dual diagnosis of intellectual and mental disability is and how to provide appropriate care, particularly in an inpatient setting
