Focus on ‘cradle to grave’ issues for brain injury case managers’ conference

This Wednesday (14th June 2017) sees the start of the Brain Injury Case Managers (BABICM) annual two day conference in Birmingham.

This year's event will focus on all aspects affecting people with brain injuries - from children and young people to adults, from their birth to their death. 

This ‘cradle to grave’ focus aims to give brain injury case managers and other support professionals working in the field of acquired brain injury, useful information, knowledge sharing, food for thought and an opportunity to network with like-minded experts.

Hyphen Law is thrilled to be attending and exhibiting at this year’s conference which has a number of eminent keynote speakers including: Christine Croisiaux, President of the European Brain Injury Society (EBIS); Dr. Andrew Curran, Consultant Paediatric Neurologist; Sue Lukersmith, Centre for Disability Research at the University of Sydney and Dr. Howard Fine, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Paediatric Neuropsychologist.

The first day of the conference will put the spotlight on babies and children with brain injuries. Thought-provoking topics include:  children providing care for their parents and siblings; complexities of cerebral palsy; making claims; rehabilitation and school and tricky teens.

Day two will see the focus switch to brain injured adults with subjects as diverse as: taxonomy of case management; making the money last; exoskeletons; future technology and the effects of ageing on brain injuries.

We are long-term supporters of BABICM’s work to promote the development of case management as a profession in the field of acquired brain injury. We often work in tandem with brain injury case managers working hard on behalf of our clients to improve their quality of life through rehabilitation, care and support.

We have seen for ourselves the significant, positive difference that good case management can bring to brain injury survivors’ lives.

BABICM 2017 promises to be an interesting and informative event and we are looking forward to manning our exhibition stand and meeting with lots of brain injury case managers, healthcare professionals and other experts involved with helping people who’ve sustained a brain injury.
