We are delighted to be a main sponsor of the UKABIF’s 9th Annual Conference, which will take place on 13th November at London’s Royal Society of Medicine. The theme of this year’s conference is ‘Navigating the future for brain injury survivors: health, rehabilitation and beyond’ and promises to be a stimulating day with a host of eminent speakers.
The conference will explore innovations in assessment and rehabilitation, and will consider how cuts in health and social services are impacting on the lives of people with ABIs.
Professor Mike Barnes, conference chair, will be joined in the morning by speakers such as Dr Emmanuel Stamatakis, Addenbrookes Hospital, who will review cognitive enhancers and functional MRI, Professor Helen Dawes, Oxford Institute of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research, discussing the use of technology to monitor rehabilitation and Dr Michael Grey, University of East Anglia, speaking about the use of virtual reality and neuroplasticity.
In the afternoon, Dr Nada Andelic, Oslo University, will discuss transitional care and Yogi Amin, Irwin Mitchell, will look at the moral and legal issues that arise in a best interests framework and the denial of rehabilitation and care.
