National Paediatric Brain Injury Conference 2021: postponed
Dalton Leong, Chief Executive, said: “Over the years, a high number of attendees are from the NHS, including consultants, doctors, surgeons, nurses, and therapists. We know that many of these staff are being redeployed to support the Covid pandemic. To run a conference at this time, taking them away from delivering vital frontline services, does not seem a sensible option. We look forward to holding the conference later in the year when, hopefully, these pressures have reduced.”
"A must attend event for healthcare and associated professionals working in this field.”
This conference will explore some of the fundamental elements involved in a child’s recovery following an acquired brain injury. Whilst there are many elements to the rehabilitation journey, this conference will specifically focus on family, mental health, technology and transition. We will look at each one in detail and how they interlink and connect with one another to help a child, and their family, achieve their rehabilitation goals.
Bringing together some of the industry’s leading clinical professionals, delegates can listen to experts including consultants, doctors, surgeons, nurses, and therapists, alongside case managers and medico-legal professionals. Utilising and reporting on the latest evidenced-based research, the conference is "a must attend event for healthcare and associated professionals working in this field.”
