Our focus will be on developing a Jeder Risk assessment/profile tool Tool. I have uploaded some documents to the 2019 Risk Jedi Folder [Risk Jedi Profile Documents]. Please review them before the meeting. See you tomorrow! :)

To give a little more context to what we need to do and why we need to do it, I have pasted Jason's original email below:

As discussed at the coach meeting tonight, please see below and attached.

The NDIS Commission Standards identify we are required to meet the following NDIS Practice standards:
鈥 NDIS Practice Standards- Verification module Required (page 4-6)- this basically identifies what we need to make sure we have for all NDIS workers/staff/vols. There are also Profession Specific Requirements (mainly relating to qualifications and registration with professional bodies). In essence, we need to make sure our staff have 100 points of ID, Right to Work in Australia, Worker Screening (i.e. National Criminal History Check and WWCC in NSW), Qualifications and Experience (Resume is fine but certified copies of qualifications is needed), Professional Indemnity Insurance (Jeder has this), Public Liability Insurance (Jeder has this), Personal Accident or Workers Comp (Jeder has this), Work Health and Safety Policy and Procedures (Jeder has these), Complaints management process (Jeder has these), Incident Management Process (Jeder has these), NDIS Worker Orientation Program (we have not done this- we will all need to do this and have the certificate submitted).
鈥 NDIS Practice Standards and Quality Indicators: July 2018- the areas for the risk assessment and individual plan is in section 3 (page 13)- Support Planning. There are more parts to this that we need to go through each 12 months for continued registration with the NDIS Commission. The section states:
Support Planning
Outcome: Each participant is actively involved in the development of their support plans. Support plans reflect participant needs, requirements, preferences, strengths and goals, and are regularly reviewed.
To achieve this outcome, the following indicators should be demonstrated:
飩 With each participant鈥檚 consent, work is undertaken with the participant and their support network to enable effective assessment and to develop a support plan. Appropriate information and access is sought from a range of resources to ensure the participant鈥檚 needs, support requirements, preferences, strengths and goals are included in the assessment and the support plan.
飩 In collaboration with each participant, a risk assessment is completed and documented for each participant鈥檚 support plan, then appropriate strategies to treat known risks are planned and implemented.

飩 Periodic reviews of the effectiveness of risk management strategies are undertaken with each participant to ensure risks are being adequately addressed, and changes are made when required.

飩 Each support plan is reviewed annually or earlier in collaboration with each participant, according to their changing needs or circumstances. Progress in meeting desired outcomes and goals is assessed, at a frequency relevant and proportionate to risks, the participant鈥檚 functionality and the participant鈥檚 wishes.

飩 Where progress is different from expected outcomes and goals, work is done with the participant to change and update the support plan.
飩 Where appropriate, and with the consent of the participant, information on the support plan is communicated to family members, carers, other providers and relevant government agencies.

Attached are the two documents that were developed at the time just to meet this standard. If we did not have something, we would not have met the standard and thus not reached registration requirements.

Any feedback, thoughts, comments, improvements etc is greatly welcome. I agree we need to have a more appropriate and person centred approach to this, but it is something we absolutely need for all participants we support. I know this will be a pain for some but this is not negotiable from my perspective.

As you can see, to continually meet audit requirements, it is going to take a lot for us to make sure all our members etc are completing the required/mandatory (one of a better word) items as when the auditors review our client information, it is a random sample (and knowing our luck it will be a random sample that does not have these documents). I don鈥檛 know how we can truly do this in a self managed/directed environment- it comes back to accountability to Jeder.

I hope this all makes sense.

Kind Regards,

Jason Emmins
