Australia is experiencing significant disability reform with the introduction of a $22B National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). The NDIS aims to influence social and economic participation of Australians aged under 65 years at Scheme entry, who experience significant and permanent disability including spinal cord injury (SCI). This PhD utilised mixed methods to explore time use, occupational experience, health, community integration and personal wellbeing of adults with SCI living in the community. A range of peer-reviewed journal articles and government submissions were produced. Research findings were used to inform occupational therapy practice, Government policy and strategy, as well as NDIS implementation.
