We merged our brain injury and complex neurodisability working groups to form the neurorehabilitation working group.
The group consists of members and fellows who have a specific interest in brain injury, neurodisability and different aspect of neurorehabilitation.
We 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, and it is our intention for the 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.
