Where Resiliency is and How to Get it

Bouncing Back with Resiliency

As a nurse, wouldn’t it be great to have a better understanding to provide targeted techniques for care of your TBI patients?

As a survivor, wouldn’t it be great to know more about your brain’s capacity to mold to your new lifestyle?

As a caregiver, wouldn’t it be great to know you are doing the right things for your loved one?

 

The Brain Injury Alliance of Utah (BIAU) is the only Utah non-profit organization devoted exclusively to education and support related to prevention of and recovery from brain injury.

The BIAU is again presenting its annual Family and Professionals Conference, designed to provide valuable information for survivors of brain injury, their families and the professionals who provide support during recovery. Celebrating its 27th year, the November 4, 2016 conference will be held at the Davis Conference Center in Layton, and will feature Adam Schwebach, Ph.D., Neuropsychologist and Certified School Psychologist with the Neuropsychology Center of Utah, as its keynote speaker. Dr. Schwebach will speak on Resiliency and Brain Plasticity.

Additional information throughout the day will be geared to help and assist rehabilitation nurses, neuro critical care nurses and neuro acute care nurses – with emphasis on the full spectrum of patient recovery – from critical care to community reintegration at work, school and home. Those in skilled nursing facilities and school nurses will also benefit. We will present the importance of coordinating TBI services, elements of caregiver support and strategies relative to executive function. Please mark your calendar for Nov. 4!
