Description

Neurobehavioural Disability after Acquired Brain Injury: Recent Innovations in Clinical Practice and Delivery


Neurobehavioural disability after acquired brain injury is considered the greatest threat to personal autonomy, undermining rehabilitation potential and social independence. The management of challenging behaviour continues to evade many existing services, with people gravitating to nursing homes, psychiatric hospitals and prison as a consequence. Despite this, neurobehavioural rehabilitation is considered best practice to help people attain their full personal autonomy.

This exciting one-day conference will bring together leading experts in acquired brain injury to provide authoritative accounts of the latest clinical innovations and cutting-edge developments in the management of challenging behaviour following brain injury.

The varied, dynamic and practical programme will support a wide range of rehabilitative practices and will appeal to all those interested and/or involved in the care of individuals with an acquired brain injury, including case managers, commissioners, rehabilitation and healthcare professionals, clinicians, academics and legal fraternity.

The Conference will take place on the 26th November 2018 in the Swansea Marriott Hotel, Maritime Quarter, Swansea, SA13SS.

For a full write-up and review of our 2017 conference, see page 23 HERE.
