Introduction: This integrative literature review aimed to gather evidence about what is known in regard to the practice of disability nursing in Australia in the context of workforce changes with the introduction of National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS). It has been reported that people with ID have poor health outcomes, compromised physical health and limited accessibility to health services. It is further illustrated with 38 % of the avoidable deaths for people with ID, in contrast to 17% in the general population and a 26-year gap in life expectancy with the general population. Thus, it is significant to understand how the profound care service delivery changes for people with ID have impacted the quality of care they receive when in hospital and/or community settings.
