NDIS enrolments surging, but at what expense?

The number of people joining the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) jumped dramatically in the last three months of 2016, according to official figures. Close to 26,000 people signed on — three times the number who joined in the previous quarter. The latest numbers are a big turnaround from the first quarterly report of the scheme's "transition" phase, when only 7,400 new participants were enrolled. That was well below initial targets. But disability advocates have said the focus on enrolment numbers has a cost. Read the full ABC News article here.

Health News

Are your clients vaccinated against the flu? - also what about the staff.

Vaccine myopia: adult vaccination also needs attention

The vast majority of people who are eligible to receive free vaccines under the National Immunisation Program, but do not receive them, are adults rather than children.  We estimate that there are about 4.1 million undervaccinated Australians each year; that is, people who are eligible to receive free vaccine(s) under the National Immunisation Program (NIP) but do not receive them. Many vaccines are officially recommended for Australians in a range of circumstances, at full cost to the individual, at a subsidised cost or free of charge.  The latter category are vaccines that have been added to the NIP Schedule for eligible groups, following expert advice that they should be provided free of charge, based on an analysis of the disease burden, vaccine efficacy, safety and cost. In this article, we specifically discuss NIP vaccines and eligible groups.

Official Immunization Information

http://www.immunise.health.gov.au/

The more people who are vaccinated, the fewer opportunities a disease has to spread.

This year for the first time the flu shot will be available at pharmacies nationwide, as well as medical centres and GP clinics. It is important to note that while the vaccines are provided free, there may be a consultation fee.

Building the readiness of the non-government sector for the NDIS

NSW Audit Office report - 'Building the readiness of the non-government sector for the NDIS' was tabled in Parliament. The report found that the Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) has effectively expanded the overall capacity of the non-government disability sector in preparation for the NDIS. The report's findings are a testament to the sustained, collaborative effort and investment in the disability sector over the past 10 years in NSW.
FACS is committed to implementing all four recommendations of the report and to work closely with National Disability Services and the National Disability Insurance Agency to support providers throughout the remainder of the NDIS transition period.
FACS' formal response and more information on how the recommendations will be addressed can be found at http://www.audit.nsw.gov.au/publications/latest-reports/building-readiness-ndis

Research & Demographic Reports

Autism in Australia

Autism Spectrum Australia describes autism as: lifelong developmental disabilities characterised by marked difficulties in social interaction, impaired communication, restricted and repetitive interests and behaviours and sensory sensitivities. The Autism in Australia web snapshot shows that an estimated 164,000 people had autism in 2015, representing about 1 in 150 Australians. In 2014-15, around 43,500 people with autism accessed services under the National Disability Agreement, with 64% using community support services - services which provide assistance to live in a non-institutional setting such as therapy support, early childhood intervention and behaviour or specialist intervention. Males were 4 times more likely than females to have the condition, with prevalence rates of 0.8% and 0.2% respectively. Download AIHW web report: Autism in Australia

Association Between Maternal Body Mass Index in Early Pregnancy and Incidence of Cerebral Palsy  

Eduardo Villamor, MD, DrPH; Kristina Tedroff, MD, PhD; Mark Peterson, PhD; et al  In this nationwide cohort study of 1.4 million singleton Swedish children, maternal overweight and obesity were statistically significantly associated with increased rates of cerebral palsy. The association was restricted to children born at full term and partly mediated through asphyxia-related neonatal complications. JAMA. 2017;317(9):925-936. doi:10.1001/jama.2017.0945.

Specialist homelessness services 2015-16

This is the fifth annual report of the Specialist Homelessness Services Collection, and the second as an online web report. The web report provides information about the clients of specialist homelessness agencies who were assisted in 2015-16, the services they requested, the support they received, and outcomes achieved. It also presents key trends from the 5 years of the collection. Since July 2011, agencies have supported over 800,000 Australians who were either homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. During 2015-16, an estimated 279,000 Australians were assisted by specialist homelessness services, equivalent to 1 in 85 Australians. One in 6 clients were female and 1 in 4 were Indigenous. Nationally, on any given day 1,500 agencies across the country are supporting around 57,000 clients, including 10,000 young people who present alone and over 16,000 children in families being supported. Conversely, 275 times each day people were unable to be assisted by specialist homelessness agencies. Download report: Specialist homelessness services 2015-16

Neurological Autoantibody Prevalence in Epilepsy of Unknown Etiology  

Divyanshu Dubey, MD; Abdulradha Alqallaf, MD; Ryan Hays, MD; et al. Autoimmunity may contribute to some unexplained epilepsy cases. This prospective study of 112 consecutive patients with new-onset epilepsy or established epilepsy of unknown etiology found that 39 patients had serum antibodies suggesting an autoimmune etiology and more than 20% had autoantibodies strongly suggesting autoimmune epilepsy. An antibody prevalence in epilepsy score of 4 or higher can help estimate the likelihood of an autoimmune origin.
