Delivered by former healthcare professional who have retrained as a legal professional, this course will allow delegates to gain a clearer understanding of the role of expert witnesses, the Civil Procedure Rules and Practice Directions pertaining to expert witnesses; issues of liability in the context of case-law imposing liability on expert witnesses; and the selection and role of a single joint expert.

Switch off resistance, switch on recovery

Date: 18 March 2015

Venue: Eastwood Hall, Nottingham

St Andrew's National Brain Injury Centre Conference 2015: ‘Switch off resistance, switch on recovery’

Join us as we discuss the challenges following brain injury and the subsequent opportunities to maximise patient engagement by transforming treatment resistance into recovery.

Our one-day conference programme will explore the experience of rehabilitation after a brain injury where issues of insight, denial, concurrent mental disorder or substance misuse prevent patient engagement with the neurorehabilitation process and can limit their opportunities to progress.

Presentations by leading speakers, and a workshop programme to provide further opportunities to explore ‘resistance’ and ‘recovery’, will equip delegates with new tools to support patients on their rehabilitation journey.

This conference will be relevant for all professionals working within neuropsychiatry and the brain injury arena, including Neurologists, Psychiatrists, Clinical Psychologists, Speech and Language Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, Rehabilitation Medicine specialists and Case Managers.

Early bird delegate fee £175.00* (on or before 1 Jan 2015), Standard delegate fee £205.00* (after 1 Jan 2015).
