Researchers from Swansea University’s Department of Psychology, College of Human and Health Sciences have teamed up with Elysium Neurological to launch their 4th annual conference on acquired brain injury titled ‘Neurobehavioural Disability after Acquired Brain Injury: Selective Topics Demonstrating Innovation in Practice and Delivery.

Taking place on 25 November 2019 at the Swansea Marriott Hotel, brain injury professionals from across the UK and beyond will descend on the city of Swansea to learn about the very latest clinical innovations, strategies and cutting-edge developments in the management of the debilitating symptoms of neurobehavioural disability after acquired brain injury.

With eminent speakers coming together to deliver an exciting, dynamic and practical programme of relevance to all those interested and/or involved in the care of individuals with an acquired brain injury, the event is set to be an exciting and informative day.

Claire Williams‌ Dr Claire Williams (Associate Professor - Department of Psychology, Swansea University) added “We extremely pleased to be co-organising such a key event in the brain injury conference calendar. Now in its fourth year, our Swansea based annual brain injury conference continues to go from strength to strength, attracting a wide range of delegates and exhibitors. With topics ranging from community neurorehabilitation, assistive technology, and where the frontal lobe paradox meets the mental capacity act – the event will be of interest to a wide range of professionals, including (but not limited to) case managers, commissioners, rehabilitation and healthcare professionals, clinicians, academics and legal fraternity”.

 

 

 

Nick AldermanProfessor Nick Alderman (Clinical Director, Neurobehavioural Rehabilitation Services, Elysium Healthcare and Honorary Professor in the Department of Psychology, Swansea University) explained that “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. For this reason, we are absolutely delighted to be bringing together renowned experts in the field to share the latest best practice in the management of such debilitating symptoms”.
