London Seminar - Understanding Brain Injuries


 

Title: “Understanding Brain Injuries”

Speaker: Professor Narinder Kapur, Visiting Professor of Neuropsychology, University College London.

 

Topics to be covered: 

1.         What are the key early predictors of outcome after brain injury?

2.         Can a mild head injury cause major brain damage?

3.         How real is the Post Concussion Syndrome?

4.         When do symptoms and cognitive deficits not reflect brain damage?

5.         What are the key issues in assessing capacity?

6.         Does psychological rehabilitation or case management make a difference in brain injury?

7.         Do symptoms improve after a claim is settled?

 

You should determine how this fits into your individual CPD plan, but the following is a suggestion from PIBA:

Learning objective for CPD plans: to gain an understanding of brain injury, the diagnosis, classification and symptoms, rehabilitation and recovery. Critically examining some of the controversial areas.

Learning rationale for CPD plans: to enable attendees to improve their understanding of brain injury medicine and litigation. To add to their knowledge of controversial diagnoses and theories so as better to understand medical reports and the more complex issues in litigation in this area.

 

Free to PIBA members and their pupils. No need to book.

 

The seminar will be followed by light refreshments.
