The effectiveness of specialist neuro-care is ever reliant on the strength of inter-disciplinary teams' flexibility using a range of therapeutic, environmental and relational interventions to improve outcomes. Working across a range of conditions including brain injury, dementia and Huntington’s Disease, the complex co-morbidities of patients entering rehabilitation and specialist neuro-care services requires ever-more integrated systems of care, the application of innovative tools and the delivery of world-class decision making.

This St Andrew’s conference on Specialist Neuro-Care, hosted by the National Brain Injury Centre (Kemsley Unit) discussed best practice in the delivery of neurobehavioural rehabilitation, specialist neuro-care and also neuro-palliative care. Speakers include Professor David Oliver (Centre of Professional Practice and Tizard Centre) and Professor Narinder Kapur (Visiting Professor of Neuropsychology, UCL) in addition to a range of workshops.

A presentation by Prof Narinder Kapur

 

Disorders of the brain have traditionally been associated with deficits in cognition and behaviour. It is increasingly evident, however, that positive phenomena may occur in such disorders, with implications for rehabilitation. I review paradoxical phenomena such as better than expected function after acquired brain injury and in neurodegenerative disease. I propose that the emerging field of positive neuropsychology may have implications for the treatments and advice we offer to neurological patients.
