Region: Western Pacific Scientific publication Coordinating services within and across sectors, Creating an enabling environment Source: Journal of Integrated Care

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new program for the provision of support to people with disabilities in Australia. The purpose of this paper is to explore the early implementation experience of this scheme, with a particular focus on the implications of this scheme for issues of care integration. There is little empirical data relating to the implementation of the NDIS to date. This is the first study to explore boundary issues in relation to care integration.
