This training is for anyone working with people living with brain injury. It is a 'not to be missed' opportunity to further develop skills and knowledge in supporting people impacted by brain injury. Sessions are available in Hobart and Launceston March 2020, and North West Tas - April/May.
BIAT is pleased to share information on the upcoming brain injury training, provided around Tasmania in Hobart, Launceston and Devonport.
The training is facilitated by Sue Sloan, who is an AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) registered clinical neuropsychologist and occupational therapist who has worked in brain injury rehabilitation for over 40 years.
Sue's particular interest is assisting people with brain injury who display cognitive impairments and challenging behaviours, to build their independence and community participation.
