We had a fantastic day as a main sponsor of the UKABIF’s 9th Annual Conference at London’s Royal Society of Medicine earlier this week.
The theme of this year’s conference was ‘Navigating the future for brain injury survivors: health, rehabilitation and beyond’. The conference explored innovations in assessment and rehabilitation, and looked at how cuts in health and social services are impacting on the lives of people with ABIs.
Richard McKenzie, Chief Operating Officer and Claire Huby, Marketing & Communications Manager attended and had the opportunity to learn from eminent speakers and network with professionals in the industry. Several of Christchurch’s doctors also attended as delegates.
Professor Mike Barnes, conference chair, was joined in the morning by speakers such as Dr Emmanuel Stamatakis, Addenbrookes Hospital, who reviewed cognitive enhancers and functional MRI, Professor Helen Dawes, Oxford Institute of Nursing, Midwifery and Allied Health Research, discussed the use of technology to monitor rehabilitation and Dr Michael Grey, University of East Anglia, spoke about the use of virtual reality and neuroplasticity.
