Upholding the right to life and health: a review of the deaths in care of people with disability in Queensland

16 Feb 2016

The deaths of 73 people with disability who died in care in Queensland between 2009 and 2014 were reviewed. The review highlighted numerous risk factors and vulnerabilities, and identified key areas in the delivery of health and disability services that require reform. The report presents condition-specific and issue-specific recommendations, and overarching systemic recommendations for consideration by Government. While not all recommendations are linked to the NDIS, both Government and people with disability will bear the consequences of inaction if the issues underpinning these recommendations are not addressed in NDIS transition planning.
