Christchurch Group is very pleased to sponsor the 8th Annual UKABIF Conference – From Surviving to Thriving with Acquired Brain Injury. The event takes place on 14 November 2016 at the Royal Society of Medicine, London.
Delegates will journey through the stages of acquired brain injury from the major trauma centre through rehabilitation and to community services. At each stage speakers will provide new perspectives to the treatment and care available to people with acquired brain injuries.
Dr Andy Enyon launches the day with the keynote address which looks at ‘New challenges for emergency medicine and acute rehabilitation’. This is followed by Cambridge University’s Professor David Menon’s session on ‘Predicting Outcomes for People with Traumatic Brain Injuries’. Dr Caroline Ellis-Hill continues with ‘Lifeworld Approaches to rehabilitation’. This new concept keeps the person at the centre of practice ‘humanising’ health care and will show how professionals can enhance their capacity for humanly sensitive care.
During the afternoon strategies for helping individuals once they are back in the community will be explored with a session on peer mentoring followed by self management approaches and a personal perspective on mindful rehabilitation at home. Additionally Jill Greenfield presents a case study showing the dangers of multiple diagnoses with a heart rending account of dementia and ABI.
There is something for everyone at this event – clinicians, community services, day centres, case managers, care providers and personal injury lawyers are booking their places. Christchurch Group will be exhibiting at the conference.
