A conference is being held to explore the challenges and benefits of cannabis use in brain injury rehabilitation and the multidisciplinary approach around that.
The event, organised by BIS Services, will address a variety of professional approaches to managing cannabis or addictive behaviours when working with individuals with acquired brain injury in community settings.
The conference will explore the history of medicinal cannabis use and current prescription uses in the UK will be highlighted, as well as some preliminary research results. Client perspectives on the disparity between their views and the MDT will be highlighted. This will provide clear insight into the personal motivations of these case studies alongside reflections of impact on rehabilitation planning.
The conference will also explore aspects from psychological perspectives. The application of therapy and psychological approaches such as Compassion Focused Therapy will be discussed, as well as the impact on neuropsychological function in the short and long term.
Financial and litigation impacts will be covered from a Personal Injury and CoP team perspective, providing insights into the medico-legal challenges that these behaviours impact. This will align with the challenges faced within statutory provision from the perspective of admission and community discharge planning in specialist residential settings.
An MDT approach and required adjustments from a clinical lead perspective will complement the content, providing suggestions for adjustments and accommodations to consider in rehabilitation planning.
