Hot Topics in Paediatric Neurodisabilty 2016

Over 60 professional delegates attended the highly successful Hot Topics in Paediatric Neurodisability study day hosted by The Children’s Trust on 26 February 2016. The audience of neurologists, paediatricians, therapists, psychologists and nurses heard about the latest topics in brain injury rehabilitation from speakers representing Great Ormond Street, the University of Leeds, The Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and The Children’s Trust. Professor Gareth Morgan, Medical Director at The Children’s Trust, said: “Every year over 40,000 children are left with a brain injury after an accident or illness. The Children’s Trust gives children with brain injury the opportunity to live the best life possible. “We hope that, by bringing together this expert panel of speakers and sharing ideas and expertise, children with neurodisabilities will be given further opportunities to lead the best possible life.” Dr Carolyn Dunford, Head of Therapy and Research at The Children’s Trust, covered evidence based guidelines on developmental disorder; whilst other topics discussed were respiratory disorders, movement difficulties, epilepsy, vision and scoliosis in children with neurodisability. Following an opportunity to network during lunch delegates were invited to join a guided tour of The Children’s Trust national specialist centre here in Surrey and see first-hand the work of the specialist teams working with children with brain injury. The study day was approved for 5.5 CPD credits, in accordance with the current RCPCH CPD guidelines, and following extremely positive feedback further study days will be planned.
