We’re disappointed to be unable to go ahead with our conference this year but looking forward to catching up with you all at the next one.


Out of the Comfort Zone:
Difficult decisions following a brain injury

4.5 CPD hours - accredited by APIL Training

The JSP national brain injury conference is returning on Tuesday 25th April 2017 and this time it will be taking place at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead.

Our 10th conference for all professionals working in brain injury. We will focus on some of the most difficult and challenging aspects of our work, sharing good practice, referencing the latest research and providing a forum for debate and discussion.

Our skilled and experienced speakers will present material to assist us to explore how we might best work with some of the most traumatically injured individuals and their families. We aim to be brave on the day and not shy away from controversy, so expect to be taken out of your comfort zone as we take a look at some of those issues that trouble us most.

The day will be co-chaired by John Davis, consultant specialist solicitor, and Jackie Parker, managing director of JS Parker Ltd.

Presentations from:Ÿ

  • Professor Celia Kitzinger - University of York
  • Emma Gaudern - EMG Solicitors
  • John Davis - John Davis Consulting
  • Jackie Parker, Sally Wilkinson, Jane Warren and Denise Slack - JS Parker Ltd
