Clinicians and Professionals Working with Brain Injury Survivors
If you have a patient affected by brain injury and need advice on the services available to brain injury survivors, we can help. We’ll discuss individual requirements and suggest relevant services and pathways for your patient.
Referring an Individual with Brain Injury
You may be a GP or consultant with a patient who has a brain injury, or a keyworker or community support worker in Adult Social Care Services. You may even be a Case Manager for a brain injury survivor.
Whatever your role, contact us to arrange a referral.
Brain Injury Awareness Training
We provide brain injury awareness courses to improve people’s understanding of how the brain works and raise the confidence of those supporting people with all types of brain injury.
Whether you’re an individual looking for practical advice, or an organisation where your employees would benefit from a better understanding of brain injury, we can provide the right training for you.
Our training sessions are designed to give participants an understanding of:
- How the brain works,
- What an Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is,
- How ABI effects the brain,
- How it impacts a person’s life and their family, and
- Where to go for support.
The sessions range from short talks, to 3-hour workshops, or whole day courses, for groups of all sizes. We incorporate a range of learning activities including case studies, group discussions and quizzes, depending on what you or your organisation find most useful. We provide training in the format that best suits you.
Our brain injury awareness courses are suitable for all and cover training for all instances of brain injury including those that have been acquired through:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Brain tumours
- Other head injuries
We also work alongside the emergency services aiming to reduce the incidence of brain injury.
Headway UK provide a range of information for professionals including GPs to assist them with diagnosing, managing and appropriately signposting patients and carers affected by acquired brain injury.
