Covid-19 Resources

QDN is working to make sure you have the resources and tools to make a plan to keep yourself safe and well during this public health emergency. We worked with the University of Sydney to co-design the COVID-19 Person-Centred Emergency Preparedness Plan to provide people with practical tools, resources, and tips for people to develop their own individual plan and information to help people to stay safe.

We know that getting the healthcare you need during COVID-19 has been challenging too. QDN worked with Health Consumers Queensland co-designing with people with disability and families the Know your Rights: Getting the healthcare you need during COVID. We encourage people to think about, talk about and write down a plan for how things will work for you and your support network during this time.
