Adults with Disabilities

One in six people in Australia are estimated to have a disability. People with disabilities frequently report poorer general health, higher levels of psychological distress, and have higher rates of modifiable health risk factors than people without a disability. Addressing these complex health needs can be challenging but GPs are best placed to address mental, physical, and preventative health issues, and provide ongoing health education for their patient and/or carers. Knowing how to provide holistic healthcare to the disabled community, support a new application for the NDIS, communicate effectively, engage carers, and liaise with a multidisciplinary team are essential skills for a GP registrar.
