Dr Lesley Murphy, consultant neuropsychiatrist, will deliver this year’s lecture entitled: Assessment of cognition and emotion in people with profound brain injury.
Patients emerging from a disorder of consciousness are difficult to assess. There are considerable challenges to ascertaining a patient's cognitive profile and identifying any emotional concern. However, such assessment will be valuable in facilitating appropriate rehabilitation programmes and maximising functioning and participation. Dr Murphy will present a new cognitive assessment tool, latest research and some case examples of survivors of very profound brain injury.
