On Monday 29 April 2019 we were delighted to welcome Naveen K Prabhakaran, Occupational Therapist, Dr Paul Russell, a Clinical Neuro-psychologist and Lindsay King, a Speech Therapist, from the Cumbria Community Acquired Brain Injury Rehabilitation Team (CCABIRT) to the Day Centre. The team provided an informative presentation on neuro-rehabilitation which focused on the following themes:
- Good outcomes in rehabilitation
- Factors that help the rehabilitation process
- The anatomy of the brain
- How different parts of the brain are responsible for different functions
- The challenges of rehabilitation
- The biopsychsocial model of health
The audience of 40+ members, volunteers and support workers engaged fully with the subject. Lots of questions were asked and many shared their own experiences of the rehabilitation process in what was a lively and dynamic session.
The slides used for the presentation can be found here:
We would like to thank the CCABIRT team for making time in a busy schedule to come and talk to our members and hope that the success of this event can be repeated again in the future.
