In addition to the plenary sessions, our practical workshops and symposia, presented by experts in the field, give delegates the opportunity to participate in debate, discussion, learn new techniques and share good practice. Dedicated to exploring latest developments and strategies for the treatment and rehabilitation of people with acquired brain injury, the BIRT Conference 2015 will examine the future of brain injury rehabilitation giving delegates new ideas, approaches and inspiration to use in their work with people with acquired brain injury. We are very grateful to Irwin Mitchell Solicitors whose main sponsorship has enabled us to keep delegate prices relatively low, thus making the BIRT Conference 2015 accessible for as many people as possible. Who should attend Professionals working in acquired brain injury including clinical psychologists, clinical neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, rehabilitation medicine specialists, GPs, physiotherapists, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, social workers, care managers, case managers, rehabilitation support workers, statutory and voluntary sector care providers, personal injury lawyers, representatives from CCGs, NHS England, and CSUs, who wish to develop knowledge about brain injury rehabilitation.

3 Conference highlights As part of an exciting first day of the Conference Professor Mark Solms, Head of the Department of Psychology and Professor of Neuropsychology at The University of Cape Town, will introduce ground breaking research that builds bridges between Psychoanalysis, Neuroscience, Psychology and Psychiatry. By combining the insights of these disciplines, brain injury professionals are gaining a better understanding of mind and brain. BIRT brings you the opportunity to learn more about this pioneering way of thinking and about the potential to use it in interventions to aid neuropsychological rehabilitation. Assistive technology is well established as vital in healthcare, and it is now regularly used in brain injury rehabilitation. Delegates will have the opportunity to see (and try out themselves!) the latest technology for activities of daily living in Workshop 8, convened by Dr Brian O Neill, winner of the Laing Buisson Award for Innovation. Symposium 11 will feature new technology being used for cognition, including memory and executive function, disorders of visual perception and attention, and is presented by experts who specialise in this field.
