About the CPD course

During this presentation delegates will learn what is covered by the term Disorder of Consciousness at least as it applied with those with an insult to the brain and be able to distinguish between coma; the VS and the MCS. They will also understand some of the assessment procedures used to determine whether or not someone has a DOC and comprehend that differences in position may affect test results. The presentation will also cover one man’s story and why he made a good recovery from a DOC and the major characteristics of the LIS. It will present different accounts of people with the syndrome; what to expect in the way of recovery and possible ways to communicate with those with LIS. Finally it looks at the difficulties with assessment of such patients and some of the minor cognitive deficits that might be present.
