ASSBI Conferences - PREVIOUS

THE 2021 ASsbi conference Was the
6th pacific rim conference

Kerryn Pike, Travis Wearne and Dana Wong were co-convenors of the 6th Pacific Rim conference, the first joint conference of three outstanding organisations: the International Neuropsychological Society, the Australasian Society for the Study of Brain Impairment, and the Australian Psychological Society’s College of Clinical Neuropsychologists. In  this conference was to be held in the vibrant metropolitan city of Melbourne, in Australia. Melbourne regularly tops the lists of the most liveable city in the world, because of its fantastic culture, food, music, sport, entertainment, and spirit of open intellectual curiosity. Because of COVID-19 restrictions the conference was held totally online via cvent's Virtual Attendee Hub

To reflect the difference we can make when we join together, the conference theme was “Putting our heads together to change lives”. The conference organising committee comprised a diverse group of scientist-practitioners, and were all keen to make the conference an exciting, multidisciplinary, practically grounded, innovative program of presentations and events. In particular there was a focus on how our field has responded to the set of circumstances relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, including our use of telehealth for service provision.

We compiled a program of fabulous international and national speakers who inspired us to reflect on our professions and how we can maximise our impact for people living with brain conditions. These speakers covered a range of clinically relevant topics including the costs and benefits of neuropsychological assessment; frontal lobe functions including social cognition and executive functions; and telehealth delivery of services for people with brain conditions.
