Reforming Queensland’s authorisation framework for the use of restrictive practices in NDIS and disability service settings

Consultation Open

  • Queensland Government’s role in preparing positive behaviour support plans

    Under the DSA currently, the chief executive of Disability Services is solely responsible for conducting multidisciplinary assessments, and for developing and changing positive behaviour support plans, which involve containment or seclusion.

    The Ministerial review found that these responsibilities should be removed to enable non-government service providers to also undertake these functions. This would better align with the NDIS principle of choice and control for people with disability and the draft national principles for restrictive practices authorisation, and would bring Queensland into line with arrangements in other jurisdictions. It would also appropriately recognise and support the increasing capacity of the market to undertake these functions.
