NDIS Law Conference 2022
February 23 @ 9:00 am - 5:15 pm AEDT$770
The 2022 NDIS Law Conference will take place online 23 February 2022.
The underfunding of NDIS participants has been a major concern throughout the pandemic. Overall funding is expected to grow to $31.9 billion in 2024-5. This event examines the strategies needed by legal practitioners to ensure they are not caught out and can fully assist their clients. In this event, attendees will learn from the latest cases, understand assessing capacity and restrictive practices, discover steps for self-advocating at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) and analyse appropriate business structures for NDIS providers. It is a must-attend for advisers and providers in the NDIS sector.
Michael Perkins and Dr Jane Lonie of Autonomy First will kick off the event with the first session, ‘Evaluating Decision Making Ability and Evidencing Informed Consent of Participants’.
This session will explore:
- When does the right to assume decision making capacity become dangerous?
- Common types of problematic high stakes decisions with ageing and disabled clients
- Behaviour based evaluation of decision making; safeguarding and supporting the will and preference of the person under care
- Resolving decision making ability: Introduction to interview evaluation protocol
- Introducing cognitive responsiveness as a mitigation strategy for abusive or coercive conduct
- Practical application through case studies
