Further Information:

National Disability Services has as one of its key priorities research and analysis that promotes good policy and service progress. With the assistance of the NSW Government, NDS established the Centre for Applied Disability Research (CADR) in late 2013 to deliver on this strategic priority. CADR’s purpose is to improve the wellbeing of Australians with disability by gathering insights, building understanding and sharing knowledge.

The key findings of the 2014 Audit of disability research in Australia (the Audit) included that ‘that there is no critical mass of research on topics of priority to the National Disability Strategy, the National Disability Research and Development Agenda and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS)’. The disability research agenda lacks critical mass, is not well coordinated, and is disconnected from a sustainable funding base. These immediate challenges can be met with purposeful collaboration if the many questions that need to be answered are to support progress on a once in a generation disability policy reform. A sustainable and mature research base requires focus, depth, quality and coherence.

CADR’s research program has been informed by the Audit and by our understanding of NDS member research interests and capacity. There is an urgent need for more applied and translational research. People living with disability, their families and carers, and the service providers they choose need to know ‘what works, for whom, under what circumstances, at what cost’ if the ‘right services are to be available at the right place and time, for the right price’.

Introduction and Excuse me!

Pardon me, while I get this social media enterprise working. It has taken me 12 months to get this far with this editorial labyrinth. My former pre Parkinson’s self would have had this whipped up in a week or two, reality changes ability, however I won’t let it kill...

They Call me Shuffles

They Call me Shuffles

    A diagnosis with Parkinson's changes a lot of things: Motor function, non-motor functions, but maybe even more powerful is the changes in social interactions. I personally don't mind being called "Shuffles" now, I did at first (8 or so years ago I think), I...
