Your exclusive invitation for professionals who help those with brain injury, and for survivors and their families, only by application RIGHT NOW!
For 2.5 hours, this Thursday (23rd September 2021, 10.30am to 1pm), listen to and talk directly with the UK’s Leading Experts in Stroke Recovery.
Listen to and ask Professor Val Pomeroy (University of East Anglia) about getting to grips with/analysing action control and Professor Avril Drummond (University of Nottingham) about managing fatigue.
Co-chairs: Hokman Wong (Bolt Burdon Kemp) and Tom Balchin (ARNI).
This is a rare chance for you to ask these two engaging experts about their fields and any other query you have. They will present for 45 mins each and the rest of the time will be concerned with taking your questions. So do come prepared with a few questions to ask: go for it!
There is NO CHARGE and we can also also apply on your behalf for a Certificate for 2.5 hours National CPD Service CPD points for attending.
These people are experts who I myself try and engage with when I need help in order to help a patient with a certain issue. So whoever you are, be it professional, survivor, family member or carer, do book up for this event (see flyer below).
