26 Mar 2024 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Online

Tuesday 26 March 2024

Online via Zoom

It can be common to see those with severe cognitive brain injury described as “untestable”. Although this may be technically correct in referring to the use of standardised published assessments, it does not mean that no information can be gained from other ways of assessing.

In this open lecture, senior psychologists at the RHN, Dr Sarah Crawford (Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist) and Dr Alexandra Rose (Principal Clinical Psychologist specialising in neuropsychology) will discuss common thoughts and conceptions about mood and cognition after severe brain injury. They will explore how they work with this patient populations and ways of assessing mood and cognition when persisting severe cognitive and receptive communication impairments are present.

Lead Facilitators

Dr Sarah Crawford, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist, RHN
