Disability Care Quality, Safety and Reform Forum
Achieving exemplary quality, care, and safety standards amidst ongoing disability services reform
The NDIS was a major focus of the recent budget and has been the subject of intense political scrutiny in recent months. The release of the final report from the Royal Commission is also due later this year. Never has the political and media microscope been so firmly fixed on the quality and safety of the sector.
The Disability Care Quality, Safety and Reform Forum will feature presentations and panels from leading organisations on subjects such as:
- How can providers and vendors gain clarity on, and prepare for, the upcoming reforms?
- How can you help enhance the capacity and capabilities of your workforce to deliver exceptional high-quality care?
- How can you embed organisation wide governance frameworks, integrate participant voices, and transform legacy practices to improve the safety and quality of your organisation?
Attending offers the opportunity to gain a snapshot of what other organisations are doing to overcome the sector’s most pressing challenges, as well as the chance to forge connections that will strengthen your quality, safety, and risk outlook.
- Hear from Yooralla about their journey to embedding the voice of clients and staff with a disability into their service design

- Upskill the capabilities and capacities of your workforce to improve quality of care
- Explore alternative models of disability housing and how to ensure participants have access to adequate accommodation
- Learn how to identify the safeguarding data that matters and how it can be used to improve your quality outcomes
- Discover how you can increase the employment of people with disability to improve your workforce and care quality
