The 4TH Annual National Acquired Brain Injury Conference is taking place on 8 - 9 November 2016 at the Royal Rehab, Ryde.
The program will highlight key strategies for managing the changing needs of people with an ABI, including innovative models of care and support across Australia. The event provides an opportunity to share the latest news and developments for ABI, in areas such as research, advocacy, rehabilitation, treatment, best practice, case studies and policy from across the country.
It is a very practical-led conference, involving service providers, people living with ABI and their family and carers as both speakers and attendees; offering attendees new and innovative ‘take home learnings’ to help improve quality and service delivery.
