What is the project about?

The project involves the testing of an enhanced approach to supporting adults under guardianship of the public advocate to make decisions that affect their life whilst having access to hospital service systems in a way that makes reference to their current and future life and health care wishes. 

 

The project aims to support the community and support structures around a person with a disability by providing upskilling, thereby positively impact the disabled person.

We set out to support people with disabilities under the guardianship of the Public Advocate who are at greatest risk of not being able to express and realise their life goals and health wishes (including advance care directives), by providing training to improve access and experiences with mainstream and specialist health care services.
