Download (751.95 kB)

This report is the first of two reports being prepared as part of a broader project titled the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) Recovery-Oriented Psychosocial Disability Support (ROPDS) – Growing National Workforce Capability Project ('the Project').

A key deliverable of the Project is a Literature Review and a Synthesis Report regarding good practice in recovery-oriented psychosocial practice service provision contextualised to the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) environment. The Literature Review and Synthesis Report is divided into two stages: Stage One – The Current Landscape; and Stage Two – The Future Horizon.

The Current Landscape reports on Stage One of the Project and provides a summary of a literature review that focused on the history of recovery; recovery-oriented practice; the current practice environment, and key considerations for Stage Two of the Project. The Future Horizon will report on Stage Two, providing information to guide the NDIS ROPDS Project team in developing a consistent national picture of the recovery-oriented capabilities required for psychosocial disability support workers. Stage Two will build on what we have learnt from the Stage One review and will more directly explore how to address the barriers and workforce-related issues impacting on effective recovery-oriented practice for NDIS participants with psychosocial supports in their plans.
