About this event

This training would benefit health professionals who work with people with disabilities as a disability carer, support worker, advocate, aged care worker, physiotherapist, and occupational therapist.

The International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD) is a day to celebrate people with disability and promote awareness and understanding within the community. With individuals with disability at a higher risk of unintentional injuries in care environments, join Injury Matters as we discuss injury prevention strategies and the key risk factors that contribute to injury within people with disability, as well as how we as health professionals can advocate and ensure safer environments for people with disability.

Guest speakers include Carli du Plessis, Occupation Therapist at APM, and Symon Still, Injury Prevention Manager at PBF.

This webinar training aims to:

  • Increase knowledge of risk factors causing injuries among people with disability
  • Increase awareness of injury prevention strategies when working with people with disability
  • Increase confidence to access relevant resources and implement interventions as health professionals working with people with disability
