NDIS High Intensity Support Skills Descriptors
The NDIS High Intensity Support Skills Descriptors sets out the skills and knowledge that NDIS providers should have access to, when delivering complex supports, safely, to NDIS participants. The purpose of these descriptors is to ensure that organisations provide support workers with the skills and knowledge to support clients with complex needs.
The delivery of training for high intensity daily activities poses some of the greatest risks for NDIS participants (clients) who must ensure that the supports they receive are safe and of the highest quality.
For over 30 years Premium Health has supported organisations in developing capabilities across a broad range of complex needs. Every program (Face to Face or Online Live Training) is delivered by a health professional (a nurse or paramedic) as such Premium Health has the knowledge, experience and ability to support your organisation in developing these capabilities, this includes workshops such as:
