Sometimes a participant requires assistance from more than one worker or therapist at the same time. In these cases, the provider is entitled to bill for the time spent providing the support by all workers and therapists involved in delivering the support. Examples of cases where this may occur include: 

 “shadow shifts” that allow new workers to be introduced to a participant who has complex individual support needs so that they can understand their support needs and patterns; 

 supervision of, or specific training for, therapy assistants by the supervising therapist as part of the handover of the support delivery to the participant by the therapist to the therapy assistant; 

 case conferences between therapists about the specific support needs of a participant.
