Faculty of Neuropsychiatry: Neurorehabilitation Working Group


 

ASection of Neuropsychiatry: Complex Neurodisability Working Groupbout us

The Faculty has decided to merge the Brain Injury Working Group and the Complex Neurodisability Working Group to form a new Neurorehabilitation Working Group. The group will consist of Members and Fellows of the College who have a specific interest in brain injury, neurodisability and different aspect of neurorehabilitation. This new group will aim to continue enhancing the work that the two parent groups have produced so far with an addition of aiming to promote neuropsychiatry of neurorehabilitation as an emerging area of clinical and academic interest. We are keen to explore collaborative working with colleagues from rehabilitation medicine, neuropsychology and allied therapy disciplines. It is our intention for the new working group to become an active forum for developing assessment guidelines, collaboration in research projects, creation of training opportunities and a forum for discussion and response to important policy documents. Dr Rafey Faruqui will be the Chair of this new working group. We are in the process of planning our first meeting at the Royal College of Psychiatrists during the second quarter of 2017. The meeting will have an academic focus with invited speakers.
