Beyond standard care and treatment in brain injury rehabilitation? Why and how.

Severe acquired brain injury resulting from trauma to the head, stroke or lack of oxygen to the brain, has long-term cognitive and emotional effects. These affect behaviour and psychosocial function, and impair engagement in standard care and treatment. They also affect a person’s ability to self-manage, and their participation in meaningful social roles. This session will use a case to illustrate how a neurobehavioural approach can be used to overcome the challenges of altered brain function, and will share tips to help support learning, engagement in therapy, and improve self-management and functional ability. At the end of the session participants will gain an understanding of the rationale, clinical effectiveness and cost benefits of the neurobehavioural approach to brain injury rehabilitation for those presenting with complex needs, such as diabetes, substance misuse or mental ill-health.
