Why join the course? 

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a very important aspect of medical education and is often not taught specifically in either undergraduate or postgraduate courses. St George’s has one of the few TBI services in the country, and the TBI team have developed this one-day teaching course to focus on the clinical management of this patient group. A particular focus will be the inter-disciplinary team management and the entire MDT will be presenting during this teaching day.

Course Description

The course will cover: TBI presentations, and the common complications of the pathology, understanding the importance of inter-disciplinary team working, and how the various allied healthcare professional members of the team integrate with the medical staff. We will also concentrate on important topics such as the Mental Capacity Act, Deprivation of Liberty and the management of the acutely behaviourally disturbed patient. These are all critical to all healthcare professionals on a day to day basis.

It is hoped that learners who complete the course will be able to:

  • Understand the way in which an MDT work together in an inter-disciplinary way.
  • Understand the common presentations of a patient with a TBI.
  • Understand the principles behind the treatment of the acutely agitated patient.
  • Understand the Mental Capacity Act and Deprivation of Liberty clause, and why these are important patient safeguards.

This is a hybrid course and delegates can choose to attend face to face or online via MS Teams. Provisional programme can be seen below but please note this may change once we have a new date.

“It was a brilliant day - most of the speakers were very animated and kept the audience interested and engaged...The learning I had will be of big help on my plan for service improvement in work.”

“The role of neuropsychiatrist was particularly interesting, I also enjoyed cognitive changes, communication, and challenging behaviour, as can relate this to the clients we manage in the community.”

“Excellent course and content. I found the course to be very informative and provided a well-rounded overview of what a TBI is, how to manage it and interventions which can be useful.”
