Person-centred reporting framework

Person-centred reporting is an opportunity to improve the evidence base around people with disability. It does this by placing the person at the core of understanding why experiences vary, even for people who may have similar conditions and functional needs.

This report uses the AIHW’s person-centred reporting framework. This framework summarises the broad areas across which people with disability pursue life outcomes, and the common social policy and program areas they come across in everyday life (Figure 1). The individual components may interact, and the level of interaction and associated outcomes will differ with individual circumstances and environmental factors (see Defining disability).
