Reforming Queensland’s authorisation framework for the use of restrictive practices in NDIS and disability service settings

Public Consultation Now Open

 

Options for reshaping part 6 of the Disability Services Act 2006.

The Queensland Government is working to determine how Queensland’s authorisation framework for the use of restrictive practices could better align with the new roles and responsibilities under the NDIS Quality and Safeguarding Framework and national principles.

Public consultation 

There has been considerable work carried out to date, including an independent review of the current authorisation framework and a Ministerial review. To ensure our approach takes into account the needs and wishes of people with disability and their families and advocates, we want you to contribute to the Queensland Government’s consideration of the future design of Queensland’s authorisation framework.

What are we consulting on?

This consultation asks for your feedback on how particular aspects of Queensland’s authorisation framework in relation to NDIS participants could be designed. The ideas for reform are ideas only at this stage, and your input will help shape the future design of Queensland’s authorisation framework. 

Have your say

To ensure that we take into account your needs and wishes, we are inviting you to comment on the work we are doing in consideration of the future design of Queensland’s authorisation framework.  We have provided a variety of ways for you to have your say and share your views.  It is very important that your views inform the ongoing consideration of how Queensland’s authorisation framework can deliver better outcomes for people with disability.

Message from the Minister

I encourage you to share your views as it is very important to ensure your views inform the Government’s ongoing consideration of how Queensland’s authorisation framework can deliver better outcomes for people with disability.

The context of this consultation

This consultation is about possible options for reshaping part 6 of the DSA, which provides an authorising framework for the use of restrictive practices in NDIS and disability service settings. Consideration of the use of any restrictive practices in other service settings (for example, health facilities, residential aged care facilities, schools, early childhood education services, or the Forensic Disability Service) is out of scope.
