Report on Access to Adjustable Height Examination Tables by People with a Disability at General Practitioners

Following on from the 2006 survey of GPs across Australia, undertaken by Sheila King of Access for All, to determine the number of adjustable height examination tables in surgeries and the Open Letter from the Australian Human Rights Commission issued in 2007, the Physical Disability Council New South Wales (PDCN) conducted a survey of people with disability in 2008/09 to gain more information and further insights about the extent of availability of such tables.

Ageing with a Lifelong Disability Student Project Final Report

“The Australian population is ageing and so too are people with lifelong disability. While it is acknowledged that people with disability have different needs than the general population, little research has been done on the extent to which these needs are addressed within the current service system.

In this project student researchers from the University of New South Wales (UNSW), overseen by academics from the School of Social Sciences and International Studies (SSIS) and the Social Policy Research Centre (SPRC) have partnered with the Futures Alliance and three other disability peak organisations in NSW. The Futures Alliance is a cooperative of community representatives from disability and aged care providers which includes representation from consumers, academics and peak bodies. The purpose of Alliance is to remove boundaries and to maximise community resources to deliver improved options for people with a disability who are ageing. The Futures Alliance has been formed and has grown via a network of professional relationships with a shared vision of influencing policy pertaining to people with a disability who are ageing and ultimately improving outcomes for this group of people.”
