I’m joined by Chantelle Robards – Allied Health Subject Matter Specialist at Ernst & Young Global Consulting Services – to discuss several barriers that seem to be preventing many Allied Health business owners from stepping outside their comfort zone and doing things differently.
We chat about the NDIS and its barriers, as well as the overall workforce including undergrad preparation, volume of students required to meet current needs, and the short and long-term impacts of more Allied Health professionals leaving the profession. You’ll also hear Chantelle’s thoughts on Allied Health Assistants (AHA’s) such as engaging in training, the commercial reality of making AHA’s work, and whether the NDIS will require for AHA’s to be qualified.
Topics covered on the NDIS, workforce and Allied Health Assistants:
- Barriers to doing business differently
- Undergrad preparations
- Delegating and releasing work to AHA’s
- Human Services Skills Organisation for information regarding engaging with RTO’s
- Allied Health Assistant Network Australia
- NDIS Quarterly Reports (NDIS Plan underspend)
- Care and Support Sector Community of Practice Facebook group

More about The Private Practice Made Perfect Show:
The Private Practice Made Perfect podcast is a much loved conversation for those wanting to hear real life Australian Allied Health business stories, adventures and the occasional confession.
The outstanding guest list includes business owners and wonderful small business supporters such as accountants, marketers, bookkeepers, IT wizards, virtual assistants, lawyers and more.
As you know, it takes a village to run a business. Cathy gathers the tribe, captures the collective wisdom and conveniently delivers it to your earbuds.
All episodes are chatty, honest and practical… warning… we often stray from the topic, talk of wine and laugh loudly.
