Supporting effective brain injury rehabilitation in the community
This is the UK’s largest one day brain injury conference. The conference takes place on the 7th May 2020 at the ILEC Conference Centre, Earls Court, London.
Head First LLP are proud to present this professional conference. This event which is kindly sponsored by Krysalis Consultancy is aimed at rehabilitation providers, lawyers, case managers, therapists and academics. The day will take us through a process of examining the current state of brain injury rehabilitation, with particular focus on the unique factors impacting community-based rehabilitation. We will hear current research and examine the components that make up effective community BI rehabilitation. We will also question how we, as a group of specialist professionals, can utilise our knowledge to share and expand our reach, thus making a greater difference to the people who use our services, their families, the staff who work in the field, and to the wider brain injury population.

ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY IN NEUROREHABILITATION
Conference & Exhibition
Friday September 11, 2020
JZ Young Lecture Theatre, Anatomy Building, Gower Street, University College London
The aim of this symposium & exhibition to be held at UCL is to apprise healthcare professionals of the latest advances in applying assistive technologies in neurorehabilitation.
It is increasingly being recognized that assistive technology can play a major role in enhancing recovery and improving outcomes in brain injury and brain disease. Recent years have seen a number of developments and research findings which may guide practitioners who wish to avail themselves of such technologies or recommend them to their clients. This event & exhibition will help to inform high quality, evidence-based practice in this area.
