We are delighted to be hosting our 11th Annual Brain Injury Lecture on Thursday 21 May 2015 at The Spa Hotel, Tunbridge Wells. The evening will be led by Consultant Neuropsychiatrist & Honorary Senior Lecturer, Dr Niruj Agrawal on Neuropsychiatric aspects of Traumatic Brain injury: Past, Present & Future.
Neuropsychiatric disorders frequently complicate recovery and rehabilitation from traumatic brain injury (TBI). These could be very disabling, adversely affecting the quality of life of patients with TBI and place undue burden on carers. Yet these are often unrecognised in routine clinical practice and remain commonly undertreated. This talk provides an overview of the common neuropsychiatric sequelae of TBI along with a guide to the assessment and treatment of these conditions.
Following on from last years speaker, Dr Julian Harriss who spoke about Revolutionary reflections on a new vision of Neurorehabilitation, we are excited to have Dr Niruj Agrawal at our 11th Annual Brain Injury Lecture.
