The 5th BPS DoN Annual Conference held on Thursday 17th and Friday 18th November 2016 at the Royal College of Surgeons.

We introduced a new two day format for the conference and to welcomed our Keynote Speakers;

  • Prof Dame Sue Bailey - Mental Health Needs and Neurodisability in Young People who Offend
  • Prof Linda Clare - Awareness in Dementia
  • Revd Dr Joanne Collicutt - Ethical dilemmas posed by acquired brain injury
  • Prof Charles Hulme - Is neuroscience a useful guide to developing educational/psychological interventions?

The new format considered how neuropsychology is applied across the lifespan and the morning and afternoon workshops reflected. The workshops were convened by expert academic and clinical neuropsychologists with a broad range of experience across specialities. In addition to our programme of keynote speakers and workshops we will welcomed submissions for posters that will be displayed throughout the conference. Innovative service projects, research, audit and case studies that illustrate the value that neuropsychology provides were especially welcome.
