Reducing the Burden of Neurobehavioural Disability
Reducing the Burden of Neurobehavioural Disability after Brain Injury: Past, Present and Future
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 an authoritative account of the conceptualisation, history and management of neurobehavioural disability. Delegates will gain increased awareness of the extent of the challenges neurobehavioural disability causes, and become familiarised with some of the latest thinking regarding assessment and treatment to enable more effective delivery of services.
The conference programme 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/or healthcare professionals, clinicians, academics and legal fraternity.
The Conference will take place on the 28th November 2016 in the Swansea Marriott Hotel, Maritime Quarter, Swansea, SA13SS.
Keynote speakers include:
Professor Rodger Wood – Clinical Neuropsychologist and Professor Emeritus of Clinical Psychology, Swansea University
Professor Tom McMillan - Professor of Clinical Neuropsychology, University of Glasgow
