NDIS Guide for Physicians
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) supports people with a permanent and significant disability that affects their ability to take part in everyday activities through an equitable, effective and responsive disability support system.
The NDIS serves as a platform where the community, government and industry can work together to help address the needs of people with disability.
The NDIS Guide for Physicians was developed to equip physicians with the skills and knowledge to work effectively within the NDIS model and support the delivery of high-quality care to patients with disability.
The Guide has been updated in 2023 and provides practical, user-friendly information for RACP members on topics including eligibility, planning and funded supports.
