An Interdisciplinary Team Approach to the Management of Patients in Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness
This one day course will enable clinicians to develop further understanding of Prolonged Disorders of Consciousness (PDOC) and to look at assessment skills, outcomes and management of this complex patient group and the challenges commonly faced.
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 before transfer to Specialised Rehabilitation Units or Specialist Nursing Homes. Presenters will include Consultants in Rehabilitation Medicine, Clinical Specialist Nursing and Allied Health Professionals. The day will also involve interactive workshops and there will be an opportunity to meet members of the interdisciplinary team, to ask questions and share experiences and to understand more about the referral process and pathway at The Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability.
