Tuesday 19 September

The Royal Hospital for Neuro-disability (RHN) provides specialist rehabilitation and long-term care to meet the complex needs of adults with acquired brain injury and long-term neurological conditions.

The RHN is thrilled to offer a study day to explore MDT approaches to 24-hour postural management. The course will highlight the challenges of chronic immobility, interdisciplinary working, enhancing function and development of patient centred 24-hour postural care.

Delegates will hear from a range of expert clinicians from across the RHN services with a wealth of experience in supporting patients with complex 24-hour postural needs. The day will invite clinical discussion, problem solving, case examples and practical demonstrations.
