Brain injury case management

BABICM Conference explores family and ethical matters

Annual event brings together expert speakers and peers from across the world of life-changing injury and neuro-rehab



Family matters and ethical concerns around supporting people after life-changing injury are the focus of a major case management event. 

The BABICM annual conference 2023 will explore some of the challenges facing professionals when supporting catastrophically injured clients. 

Steering Steady in a World of Complexity will bring an array of industry-leading speakers together with an audience of delegates from across the field of serious injury and neuro-rehab during the two-day event. 

Held this year on June 6 and 7 at the Coventry Building Society Arena, the BABICM annual conference is renowned in the world of case management for its ability to tackle prevalent topics facing professionals, while also providing the forum for peer-to-peer networking. 

Day one of the conference – which is sponsored by Slater and Gordon and Irwin Mitchell – addresses family matters, exploring the impact on whole families of children or parents sustaining life-changing injury.

The role of, and relationships with, the parents of injured children – including what happens when the child is an adult – alongside the challenges for an injured parent, and what changes if that parent is elderly, will all be addressed through discussion around lived experiences, therapeutic approaches and support frameworks.

Day two will look at ethical tightropes, and the reality of working with individuals whose lifestyle choices and decisions – wise and unwise – mean they find themselves navigating ethically-challenging situations.

Safeguarding concerns, vulnerabilities, duty of care and questions of capacity – and how they must be balanced with empowerment, human rights, legality and choice – will be discussed.

Speakers at the event will include: 

  • Dr Liz Iveson, consultant stroke and neuro-rehab physician
  • Linda Goncalves, managing director at HR 4 Case Management Limited
  • Samantha Tozer, case manager at AKA Case Management
  • Jo Clark-Wilson, managing director at Head First LLP
  • Lucy Nicol, national head of Court of Protection at Irwin Mitchell
  • Alex Rook, partner at Rook Irwin Sweeney
  • Emma Gaudern, managing director at EMG Solicitors
  • Ruth Wright, head of Court of Protection at Potter Rees Dolan
  • Mark Pearson, associate at Safeguarding Associates for Excellence

The conference will also include a best practice poster competition, with a £500 prize, for presentations which highlight good practice in the field of brain injury rehabilitation, case management and care.
