Collaborative Discharge Approach: Practice Guide

The CDA Practice Guide details the steps involved in effective discharge planning for younger people under 65 with disability or complex support needs in hospital. It is complemented by the Collaborative Discharge Approach Overview, which provides a snapshot of how health works together with support coordinators to achieve this.

The Practice Guide aims to improve the experience of younger people with disability in hospital, particularly after a significant change in their health, functional capacity or circumstances. It steps out collaborative actions between the NDIS, health, support coordination and housing, to facilitate timely discharge through access to necessary NDIS supports. Links to resources that align with specific actions are embedded within this guide.
