Information requirements when choosing and using disability services

One of the great things about my role is having the opportunity to work with some fantastic PhD students.  One of my current students – Aviva Kelk – is doing a PhD exploring the types of information that people with disabilities need to make decisions about care services in the context of individualised systems such as the National Disability Insurance Scheme.  In all the spare time Aviva has outside of her PhD (!) she runs the organisation Clickability, an online service directory of disability services that features reviews written by people with disability.

Aviva is currently doing a survey of the kinds of information people who use and/or choose disability services need to make good decisions.  If you have any insight into these issues and are willing to fill in a short survey then please see the message below.  I hope to be able to follow up and in the coming months and tell you what Aviva finds.

 

Hi there, 

I’m researching what information people want to help them choose disability or mental health services under the NDIS. It’s for my PhD at the University of Melbourne. 

I’d love your help with a survey. It’s 11 questions. It takes about 10 minutes. Here’s the link:

People with disability, family members, carers, support workers, LACs, and anyone else who’s involved in choosing services are invited to respond. 

Feel free to shoot through any questions. 

Thanks!

Aviva Beecher Kelk
