Part of our mission at P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery is to improve services, raise awareness and promote understanding of brain injury. Findings from the 2018 All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) Report on Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) also highlighted the need for greater awareness and understanding of ABI.
Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is a chronic condition with ‘hidden’ disabilities and life-long consequences. Improvements in acute care have substantially reduced the mortality rate but survivors are often left with a considerable burden of physical, cognitive, academic and psychosocial effects.
We are working towards our mission and also supporting the 2018 APPG Report by providing CDP Certified ABI Training, which is specifically targeted at those involved in the support or care of people affected by ABI. This includes those working in health & social care, legal services, criminal justice and higher education.
This engaging and interactive training will give delegates a solid foundation knowledge of the brain, ABI, its common effects and how to better support someone who is affected.
The P.A.U.L For Brain Recovery ABI Awareness Training covers:
· The basics of brain anatomy
· The parts of the brain and their function
· What Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is
· Classifications and causes of ABI
· The prevalence of ABI in the UK
· Some of the common effects of ABI
· The common challenges faced by someone affected by ABI
· How to better support someone who is affected by ABI
