National Disability Services (NDS) invites you to participate in a free webinar titled COVID-19: Positive Behaviour Support and Restrictive Practices. COVID-19 is placing extraordinary demands on all of us to change our daily habits and routines – from frequent hand washing, to social distancing, to refraining from our routine community based activities. For some people these changes may lead to significant distress and they will require greater support than others to manage the forced disruptions to their lives.
NDS has engaged with providers of Specialist Behaviour Support and implementing providers from across Australia to listen to your questions and concerns in this important area of service. Join Dave Relf (National Practice Lead – Zero Tolerance Initiative), Professor Keith McVilly (Professor and Clinical Psychologist, University of Melbourne), Dr Jeffery Chan, (Senior Practitioner, National Quality and Safeguards Commission), and Jennifer Morgan (Group Manager for Quality and Risk at Nextt), to discuss challenges related to COVID-19 and provision of services and supports to people with disability with behaviours of concern. This webinar will explore the issues providers are facing:
- emerging issues
- anticipated risks
- explore impacts and solutions as we work through this challenging terrain together.
This webinar is available to NDS Members and Associates, and all Queensland disability service providers, thanks to the financial support of the Queensland Government.
Please note: If you register for this webinar and are unable to attend, please email Anneka.Hancock@nds.org.au ASAP to ensure that someone else can take your place.
