Event description
Neurobehavioural Disability after Acquired Brain Injury: Recent Innovations in Clinical Practice and Delivery
Neurobehavioural disability after acquired brain injury can act as a major obstacle to psychosocial recovery by undermining a person’s capacity for independent social behaviour and employment opportunities. Alterations to behaviour and personality are long-lasting and enduring. They act as a significant barrier to making and sustaining relationships and can impose a serious level of stress upon families who often struggle to adapt to life with a relative who exhibits altered patterns of behaviour.  As time passes, relatives start to experience an increasing sense of ‘burden’, often because they are unaware of the neurobehavioural implications of brain injury and are unprepared for the emotional demands of the caregiving role.
This exciting and informative one-day conference will bring together leading experts in the field to provide authoritative accounts of the very latest clinical innovations, strategies and cutting-edge developments in the management of the debilitating symptoms of neurobehavioural disability.
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 25th November 2019 in the Swansea Marriott Hotel, Maritime Quarter, Swansea, SA13SS.

Professor Barbara Wilson OBE, Clinical Neuropsychologist, The Oliver Zangwill Centre for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation.
Dr Tracey Ryan Morgan (Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist, Talis Consulting Limited and Swansea Bay University Health Board) & Tracy Holcroft (Brain Injury Case Manager, Stokes Case ManagementLimited)
Dr Narinder Kapur, Honorray Consultant Neuropsychologist, Imperial College NHS Trust and Visiting Professor of Neuropsychology University College London
