Western Victoria PHN’s Supporting People with Intellectual Disability to Access Health or SPIDAH Project aims to improve how primary health care services are delivered to meet the needs of people with an intellectual disability.
The SPIDAH Project Report provides an overview of the key themes and what has been learnt from 1 July 2021 – 16 December 2021 during the co-design learn phase of the project.
WVPHN heard from people with lived experience of an intellectual disability, family, carers, community members, disability service providers, health professionals and others about their experiences, thoughts and ideas about the primary health care system in western Victoria for people with an intellectual disability.
The report was launched on Thursday 5 May, 2022 and will help guide the next steps and future directions of the SPIDAH Project to deliver better health outcomes for people with an intellectual disability in our region.
