Subarachnoid Haemorrhage: Revisiting the Bio-Psycho-Social Model
Subarachnoid haemorrhage continues to be an acquired brain injury which impacts on approximately 5% of the stroke population, particularly affecting those at working age and thus contributing to significant changes to individual and family life for many years after the event. This seminar aims to explore the neuropsychological aspects of subarachnoid haemorrhage in the context of the biopsychosocial model and how this is and can be applied to quality of life and recovery in the longer term. Whilst the biopsychosocial model has its strengths and weaknesses, it can be a useful model to formulate client’s experiences within a multidisciplinary team in hospital, community settings and beyond – including the charity sector. The Brain & Spine Foundation is an example of a charity utilising medical expertise against a backdrop of psycho-social understanding, in order to support those at any stage in their journey after a subarachnoid haemorrhage.
