Allied Health NDIS Registration Support

Understanding the requirements to become a registered NDIS provider can be confusing and overwhelming. AHPA is running a series of webinars to assist providers. These are designed to help providers effectively use the resources on this website. They also provide a broad overview of each topic and opportunities for providers to ask questions.

Upcoming webinar topics

The webinars on preparing for Certification-level audits have been postponed. People who have already registered for these webinars will be contacted directly. AHPA will provide notification when new dates for the webinars are confirmed.

Topics will include:

  • Introduction to Certification – What do I need to do? How do I use the resources?
  • Rights and Responsibilities Standard – Certification
  • Governance & Operational Management Standard – Certification Part A and Part B
  • Provision of Service (Service Delivery) Standard – Certification
  • Provision of Service (Safeguards) Standard – Certification

More information about the webinars

This webinar series is designed to help providers use the resources on this website. There are 12 topics covered in the series. Each webinar will be about 45 minutes long with enough time for Q&A. Each session will be recorded and made available on this page within a few days of the live presentation.

The structure of the series will be:

  • 1 x ‘Overview’ webinar to assist providers to understand what is required to become registered.
  • A Verification series
    • 1 x ‘Introduction to the Verification Module and the related website resources’
    • 3 webinars on the ‘Verification Module practice standards – Human Resource Management, Incidents and Complaints Management, Risk Management’
  • A Certification series
    • 1 x ‘Introduction to the Certification Core Module’ and the related website resources
    • 4 webinars on the Certification Core Module practice standards – Rights and Responsibilities, Governance and Operational Management, Provision of Supports [Service Delivery], Provision of Supports [Safeguards]
  • 1 further webinar – topic to be confirmed.

Although the webinars will be presented as two series (Verification and Certification), the Verification series of webinars will also be useful to those doing Certification as each of those topics is relevant to Certification. The Certification series may also be of general interest to all allied health businesses even if they are only undergoing Verification-level audit.

The webinar presenters, Kate Loxton and Jennifer Barron, are both occupational therapists. They have worked together on many safety and quality related system projects. This includes successfully achieving compliance against the NSW Disability Service Standards for Kate’s multidisciplinary allied health company. They have recently been working together to successfully assist allied health sole traders and small businesses to set up quality management systems for the purpose of business improvement and third party audits for NDIS registration.

Kate now still maintains a clinical caseload as well as being the Chair of the Sydney North Primary Health Network. Kate is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors so also brings governance expertise. Jennifer has held management and consulting roles related to quality and safety for the past 28 years. She has been an auditor, trained auditors and been involved in developing standards for the community care industry. Both run their own small business.
