Abstract

Australia s National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provides supports for individuals, delivered through a personalised participant planning process, to influence choice and goal attainment. This study aimed to use both quantitative and qualitative methods to examine the impact of secondary health conditions on the experiences of people with spinal cord injury (SCI) who have returned to community living, in the context of Australia s National Disability Strategy and recently launched NDIS. Exploration of lived experience of health conditions following SCI utilising this mixed methods approach may offer important insights for effective planning within an NDIS.
