40th ASSBI Brain Impairment Conference 2017 MELBOURNE
Working together to improve the lives of people with brain impairment
The 40th Anniversary of ASSBI will be celebrated at the conference in Melbourne on 1st to 3rd June 2017. On Thursday 1st June you can book up to 2 workshops. Morning workshops will be run by Prof Roshan das Nair and A/Prof William Levack, and afternoon workshops by Dr Tessa Hart and Prof Olivier Piguet, followed by the Shine Lawyers Welcome Reception. Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd June are the main conference days, with Keynote presentations from Roshan, William, Tessa and Olivier along with Prof Jacinta Douglas giving the Annual ASSBI Presidential Address. There will also be a special panel event reflecting on the past 40 and next 40 years in the field of brain impairment. In addition to the platform, datablitz and poster presentation formats, there will be a new "how-to" session format which is being introduced at ASSBI this year. “How-to” sessions are 60-minute mini-masterclasses in which a leading practitioner will briefly give an update on a specific assessment or therapeutic approach, providing an opportunity for attendees to learn new skills. Friday night is the Conference Dinner, which is sure to be a fun celebration of this important milestone for ASSBI. There will also be several student networking and educational activities.
