Webinar: Best practice in brain injury rehabilitation

Untold stories - brain injury rehab

Hosted by brain injury case management expert Mark Holloway, with insights from our brain injury team, our first untold stories webinar will cover a range of topics on brain injury rehabilitation.

Following a brain injury getting the right rehabilitation can make all the difference to physical, cognitive and emotional recovery. Discovering what rehabilitation there is available and particularly what is best practice both in hospital and beyond are really important.

Join us with our specialist and knowledgeable panel of guests to discuss the importance of best practice in:

  • ABI Rehabilitation/case management
  • Rehabilitation pathway for stroke patients
  • Finding the right neuro rehabilitation outside of hospital
  • Issues that can arise when rehabilitation is not implemented.

Ian Pearce
Director, NeuroProactive
When Ian Pearce’s father suffered a stroke, Ian, a former City banker, found himself on a completely unexpected journey. Ian witnessed first-hand some of the challenges faced by people as they attempt to recover from strokes through rehabilitation. Ian researched and arranged private therapy for his father to complement the NHS provision. However, he found the process much more difficult than expected and he was surprised by how the lack of coordination in rehabilitation reduced its effectiveness. As his father started to recover, Ian decided that there had to be a better way, and so Neuro Proactive was born. Having introduced digital systems in the City, he set about to modernise neuro-rehabilitation using digital health solutions.
