An Interdisciplinary Team Approach to the Management of Patients in PDOC
This one day course will enable clinicians to develop further understanding of Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness (PDOC) and the challenges commonly faced.
It includes interdisciplinary assessments, outcomes, common complications and management of this complex patient group whilst also supporting their families.
We will review up to date research and guidelines and there will be case studies and interactive workshops too.
We welcome all clinicians involved in the care of this specialist population especially those in acute hospitals wanting to improve their knowledge and management of these patients and their families before transfer to Specialised Rehabilitation Units or Specialist Nursing Homes.
Presenters will include –
- consultants in rehabilitation medicine
- clinical specialist nursing
- allied health professionals
There will be an opportunity to meet members of the interdisciplinary team, ask questions, share experiences and to understand more about the referral process and pathway here at the RHN.
