This free event is particularly targeted at consultants, trainees, nursing staff and AHPs within emergency medicine, acute medicine, general and orthopaedic surgery, and rehabilitation medicine. We would be delighted to welcome other Healthcare professionals, but please note there will be a specific focus on diagnosis and acute management as well as a degree of assumed knowledge.

Royal College CPD accreditation is pending.

A Programme will be available here soon:

Presentation topics include:

‘Attitude, neuroplasticity and the optimal state for recovery’ by Dr Libby McGugan, Prof Dave Sharpe on ‘What brain imaging tells us about TBI’, Prof Franco Servadei will provide ‘A global perspective on head injury’, and Davie Birrell, racing driver, will talk about his recovery from trauma ‘From Afghanistan to Le Mans’.
