Access for All Advisory Group

Advice and guidance for this project was provided by the Access for All Advisory Group. The group comprises of consumers and health professionals with a lived experience of disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander consumers with a lived experience of disability, mainstream health professionals, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health workers, Disability Advocates, and CheckUP staff.

Evaluation of Access for All – Disability Awareness for Health Providers

Access for All was evaluated by the University of Melbourne. CheckUP was pleased to see that the disability awareness course did what it was developed to do, in that a statistically significant improvement in disability awareness was identified. Furthermore, almost all respondents (97%) reported an intention to improve the accessibility of the health service they provide. Health providers can feel confident that by completing Access for All: Disability awareness for health providers, they are benefiting from a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activity that is based on best practice and lived experience.
